Where would Christians be without the dedication of Paul, the Apostle?
This movie has Paul in prison for the second time, in a Roman pit of misery. He is often beaten, often wondering what God's plan is. Yet, he is convinced that he is where the Lord wants him to be. Paul's
life reminds us that the early church suffered much for the sake of the Gospel. Why would these men and women risk their lives for "fake news"? They would not. It was because the Son of Man came, lived and died to be resurrected after 3 days and is now seated at the right hand of the Father that Paul, Luke and others risked their lives.. Paul's life was totally given over to proclaiming this Good News. "For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain." Philippians 1: 21. Wonderful movie, filled with GOOD NEWS!!!
