This is the next to last in my Apostle Paul APB series. The acronym was too great a punny double entendre to not use and highlight. APB in popular parlance is an “all points bulletin” notifying the police and others to be on the lookout for someone, which connects nicely with Paul’s arrest as well as the quest for the historical figure of Paul. APB also stands for A Polite Bribe, the title of Rob Orlando’s movie about Paul (as well as the book that was released as a companion to the film). Once again there’s a video above that gives you a taste of what is in the movie, which I recommend here once again, and then also includes a round up of recent blogging about Paul below. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, or haven’t watched it recently, now is as good a time as any to check it out.
