Our thoughts on Paul, the Apostle of Christ Movie


We ventured out to see the movie Paul, the Apostle of Christ with much eagerness and anticipation.

The movie is based upon the timeline and scripture of 1st and 2nd Timothy where Paul (James Fulkner) is imprisoned in Rome, already tried for treason, and is waiting for his death sentence to be carried out.

The church in Rome is under severe persecution and faces a choice to flee or stay. The church sends Luke (Jim Caviezel) to seek out Paul’s guidance in his final moments. While seeking out guidance Luke is also on mission to capture Paul’s final thoughts of wisdom.

This film is most certainly not for the faint of heart for it truthfully depicts the real life situations of the roman persecution and torture of Christians. There are some graphic scenes suited for a mature audience.

The overall central theme of the movie is that love overcomes all situations and is the inspiration of every choice and action a believer should make.

It echo’s the central message of 1 Corinthians 13, the over flowing grace of Jesus, and includes some of Paul’s most defining moments and testimony including his trip to Damascus.

Every believer will face various trials and difficulties and although it isn’t always clear which road to take it is clear how we should treat one another.

The movie inspires the idea of who we are meant to be as Christians and what we were meant to do as the church. This movie will inspire you to appreciate the gospel message that was preserved through the persecution of the apostles and strive to reach further its purpose and meaning in the kingdom.

If you haven’t already you can look up the details of where Paul the apostle of Christ is playing. It is only playing for 6 days so you will want to see it soon!

Tribe of Christians Host The Chief Sinner drew the inspiration for his title from the Apostle Paul:

This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it: "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners"--and I am the worst of them all."-1 Timothy 1:15
