Mauritius Gallas: If it were the only truth everyone would believe it.
Luke: Not so. Christ, who is truth, rose from the dead, many do not believe.
Mauritius Gallas: Lies, fabrications...
Paul: If Christ had not risen from the dead, then our preaching is useless, and so is our faith.
Mauritius Gallas: Oh, you have no doubts at all?
Paul: Men do not die for things they doubt.

Well done
24 March 2018 | by Major_ANCSee all my reviews

I like movies of faith though I'm not religious. This is one of the better ones to come out recently. The acting, directing, and especially editing are far superior to Sampson, another recent movie of faith which was supposed to be a blockbuster and failed miserably in every imaginable way (including the box office.)

Paul, Apostle of Christ (2018) really does uplift. Whatever you believe, a story of someone willing to endure torture and still maintain his faith, while preaching that great evil can only be conquered by greater good, is someone to be admired. This film can bring tears to your eyes, make no mistake. It can also bolster your resolve to be a force for good.
