"Paul, Apostle of Christ" Movie Giveaway

"Paul, Apostle of Christ" is a movie that tells the Biblical story of the life of Paul. Releasing nationwide on Friday, March 23, "Paul, Apostle of Christ" is a faith filled movie that is recommended for ages 13 and up.


Jim Caviezel ("Passion of the Christ" and "Person of Interest") and James Faulkner ("Downton Abbey") lead the cast in this movie. While I don't know James Faulkner very well, I have always enjoyed Jim Caviezel's performances -- especially in the science fiction movie "Frequency".

The plot: Paul is imprisoned in Rome by Emperor Nero and sentenced to death. Luke, his devoted friend, hopes to write a book that details Paul's tumultuous journeys and the message of Jesus Christ.

Although I haven't yet seen the movie myself, it looks like it will tell a powerful story of redemption, mercy and grace. Paul's imprisonment always serves to remind us to persevere in the midst of persecution -- a theme that is increasingly necessary in the world at large.

Of course this movie will have some fictional aspects to flesh it out into a movie length, but thankfully, the makers of the movie have strived to tell a story that honours the Biblical account. Check out the following video for a discussion of Biblical accuracy in the movie:


The story of Saul-turned-Paul is such an amazing example of the transformational work of Jesus Christ. When we consider that Paul could go from a man who hated and killed Christians to the writer of many New Testament books, this should give us pause. Surely God can forgive sinners such as us, if he forgave Paul his past sins. What a blessing to know that God's grace and mercy are for us all.

"Paul, Apostle of Christ" is in theaters March 23 and will be a great movie to watch in the weeks building up to Easter.
