¨Paul Apostle of Christ – Where Sin Abounds Grace Abounds More¨ The Movie


XB!

Holy Apostles of the Seventy: HerodionAgabusAsyncritusRufusPhlegonHermes, and those with them (1st c.).

¨Paul Apostle of Christ¨ fb  An inspiring movie, fairly accurate to the history of St Paul.   Is this the best representation of St Paul, or the early Church, is it the best script?  I do not know.   From the reviews I have read it is definitely not ashamed of its subject Paul the Apostle; nor the Goodnews he spread.  That Christ is not dead but arose from the dead, he reigns and grants us new life, and forgiveness of our sins.  How many movies can say that?  This may be a good movie for youth groups and young adults in particular to see.

A review from the secular Variety can be read here.

Al Kresta Catholic talk show host ( whose show often delves into difficult issues facing believers today is often well worth listening to-editor) had a 1 hour feature on St Paul with noted Biblical scholar Retired Anglican Bishop of Durham Dr N.T. Wright.

Al Kresta also did an interview with Fr Richard Cassidy a Roman Catholic Scripture Scholar on what the movie did and did not get right… (this same episode contains a very informative interview with the indomitable Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch.  Well worth a listen)

Focus on the Family Plugged In Website has this to say regarding the movie.

Oh and in case your wondering why there is no Orthodox film review.  None came up with a brief Google search….

    No — it is a pretty bad representation of who Paul was, or Luke, or the Jews, or the Christians. But other than that it was an interesting movie 🙂
