Quotes

Gamaliel: [to Paul] Saul Paulus, be careful. Leave these men alone. If this idea of theirs is of human origin, it will collapse. But if it comes from God, you will never be able to fight them, and you will risk finding yourself at war with God.

Peter and Paul
23 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best biblical movies I have seen. The fact it was made for TV makes it more remarkable, considering its' best competition was filmed for theatrical release.

As a Christian, I was a little wary of the approach Mr. Hopkins would give in his portrayal of one of the greatest men to have ever lived, the Apostle Paul. Hopkins gave a wonderful performance. His vision of Paul was entirely believable. Paul was supremely faithful, but wrestled with unforgiveness, illness, hardship, anger, etc. Mr. Hopkins' showcased the entire spectrum of Pauls' strenghts and weaknesses, without losing the strength of his immense faith in Christ.

I highly recommend this movie because it is well done, it is true to the Biblical accounts, and it is a moving account of the lives of Peter and Paul.
