My family has always enjoyed watching movies together- whether we’re watching a DVD from the comfort of our home or watching a movie on the big screen in our nearby theater, watching movies has been an important part of our family time. But I’m especially eager to watch movies that are uplifting and make me think and reflect on my faith. We recently watched “I Can Only Imagine” as a family. It’s a great movie about the power of forgiveness and redemption. It doesn’t hurt that the movie shares the story behind one of my favorite contemporary Christian songs written by MercyMe.
While we were in the theater, we saw a preview of PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST. Instantly, I knew that I wanted to watch this movie as well. The character of Paul in the Bible has always fascinated me. Paul hated Christians and actively persecuted them but then he had a miraculous change of heart and went on to be a great teacher and encourager to the early church. The transformation of Paul is very powerful.
You can watch the official trailer of PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST Movie here.
In PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST, Luke, played by Jim Caviezel, risks his life to visit Paul who is imprisoned in a Roman prison during the reign of Nero. They sense that they are both at the end of their lives and together, they struggle to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread their important message to the world. At great risk, Luke carries Paul’s letters out of prison to reach the community of believers. Paul’s letters and writings were vital to the spread of Christianity and today, are a large part of the New Testament.
