Trivia

When Luke leads the community of Christians in saying the Lord's Prayer, they recite the version in Matthew's Gospel (Matthew 6:9-13), rather than the less familiar one in Luke's Gospel (Luke 11:2-4). The two versions differ in a few details but are mostly similar. See more »

Quotes

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.

Good Movie, Recommend Seeing
24 March 2018 | by l-piotrowskiSee all my reviews

I saw this movie today and thought it was good, with excellent acting, and location (filmed in Malta which was the place of one of Paul's journeys). The movie doesn't sugar coat the persecution the Christians of that era had to endure, shirk away from divisions within the early church community or difficult questions being asked by those living in those times. The story line drags in a few places but for the most part it is a movie worth seeing in a theater.

I saw a 5pm show and sadly there were only about 10 people at the most there, so hopefully more will attend future screenings.
