I wish I could think of the last movie that I saw in theaters... my best guess is it was the Hunger Games on Christmas Day 2013? My kids aren't at the stage where they can sit and enjoy a movie without tackling the movie theater seats like an obstacle course and eating whatever crumbs they can find from between seats. BUT, we are getting a babysitter and we are going to see Paul- thanks for the tickets flybypromotions! (Any volunteers to babysit? :)
One of my favorite parts about Paul's story is how he was the chief of all sinners, yet God used him monumentally to spread the news about Jesus and write the letters which still encourage us today! The creators of Paul, Apostle of Christ, focused on how, despite persecution and peril, Paul shared Jesus’ message of love, redemption, and forgiveness with a small community of believers who in turn, took it to the whole world.
This visually stunning movie breathes new understanding on the stories of old while filling in historical details that many of us have forgotten or never knew. It's easy to think about the early church facing persecution, but when you see what that truly means, it challenges your own faith and brings a new level of appreciation for these men and women- as well as those who still share in their sufferings today.
Additionally, Paul the Apostle of Christ depicts the relationship between Paul and Luke, whom at the end of Paul’s life, traveled in and out of the prison carrying Paul’s writings to the community of believers. Both men struggle to finish their races well and leave behind a book of lasting importance for the millions who will follow Jesus in the generations to come. The movie’s main theme reminds viewers that though we are surrounded by evil, love is the only answer.
Yeah, I’m putting the tissues in my purse today so I don’t forget them!
Paul the Apostle of Christ is coming to theaters March 23- and you won’t want to miss it! If you have little ones, you'll likely want to keep them home as it's rated PG-13 for some violent content.
