In today’s video clip from Apostle Paul: A Polite Bribe, Rob Orlando suggests that Paul went to Jerusalem for the last time much as Jesus did, knowing that this could and likely would lead to his death. I think that this kind of vocation of martyr is so rare in our time that it can be hard for historians and scholars to know what to do with it. Does a filmmaker’s storytelling help you make sense of it, and get inside Paul’s head just a little bit more?
