One of the most moving stories in the Bible is the story of Saul of Tarsus. When readers first meet Saul his life appears to be motivated by pain, fervent hatred, and disgust for Christians. Readers may dislike him or even fear his role in early Christianity. Then the story makes a dramatic turn and he experiences an encounter so epic and earth-shattering that he becomes one of the most beloved and well-known Bible characters. His story is emotional and relatable. In essence, the persecutor becomes the persecuted and undergoes a name change directly bestowed upon him by divinity. Personally, I think, if God can use Saul, then He can use anyone. This Easter, Paul, Apostle of Christ is sure to move you and give you hope.
About PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST
PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST is the story of two men. Luke, as a friend and physician, risks his life when he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul, who is held captive in Nero’s darkest, bleakest prison cell. But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians, and does not flinch from executing them in the grisliest ways possible. Before Paul’s death sentence can be enacted, Luke resolves to write another book, one that details the beginnings of “The Way” and the birth of what will come to be known as the church.
Bound in chains, Paul’s struggle is internal. He has survived so much—floggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure—yet as he waits for his appointment with death, he is haunted by the shadows of his past misdeeds. Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten . . . and if he has the strength to finish well.
Two men struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread their message to the world.
