At the Movies: “Paul, Apostle of Christ”


Rain, rain, rain. Because of it, we couldn’t work in our garden, so we went to the show.

We caught the second showing of “Paul, Apostle of Christ.” As with “Samson” we saw a couple of months ago, there were few people in the theater. I’m guessing around twenty-five for this showing. I’ll say with certainty there were many more empty seats that not.

The story takes place around 64 A.D. Saint Paul, an early follower of Jesus Christ, is imprisoned in Mamertine Prison by decree of Roman Emperor Nero. Paul is partly, and incorrectly, blamed for arson in the city and the general public disturbances. Saint Luke, a Greek follower of Jesus, is also a top-notch physician, and he tends to Paul’s wounds from whippings. Luke even helps the prelate of Mamertine Prison. But there’s another side to Luke visiting Paul in jail—it becomes a great opportunity for Luke to help Paul write his experiences and teachings for all, not only the Christians, to read in the future.

My beau and I liked “Paul” very much. The plot is clear. The acting is believable. The costumes and scenery are top-notch. And the theme of forgiveness is not only perfect for the Easter season, but it is timeless. I recommend this movie.
