Paul: Apostle of Christ

A good stab at presenting the story, but too much of the dialogue was difficult to follow

(Edit) 01/05/2019

Theologically, the premise that Luke wrote Acts (his history of Paul's acts) at the point portrayed, rather than in the initial preperation of a defense for Paul's trial before Ceasar, i.e. at the point where the account ends with the statement, concerning Pauls presence in Rome up until that point, "Paul lived there two whole years in his own rented quarters and welcomed all who came to him, proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with complete boldness and without restriction." NET, Ac 28:30–31), seems unlikely. Having accepted that the makers choose to set the incidets when they did, the film looked like it might still provide some food for thought. Unfortunately, we soon found the characters tendancy to mumble lines, presumably for 'dramatic realism,' was distracting us from the content. As consequence we gave up on the film about half an hour or so in, but others might not find this so much of a problem.
