A new trailer's out for the film “Paul, Apostle of Christ," which will be released on March 28, 2018. Hollywood's latest Biblical depiction stars James Faulkner as Saint Paul, who went from being Saul of Tarsus, known for persecuting and murdering Christians, to become one of the most important figures in Christianity after he encountered Jesus on the road to Damascus.
Paul is old and suffering persecution in Rome under Emperor Nero when his friend Luke the physician begins to smuggle out Paul’s story, words that would become the Acts of the Apostles. The film is written and directed by Andrew Hyatt.
Actor Jim Caviezel, known for hs 2004 portrayal of Jesus in the 2004 film “The Passion of the Christ,” plays Luke in the film.
"The name Saul means great one," Caviezel explains in the new preview. "And Paul, the name, just by one change of a letter, means little one. In order for us to be great in the eyes of God, we have to become very small.
“I was amazed that the survival of Christianity rests with just a couple of people," Caviezel said, referring to the apostles. He added, “The people that are going to watch it are going to say ‘Wow, they were sinners just like me.’”
“Paul, Apostle of Christ,” which was filmed in Malta, also stars Joanne Whalley and John Lynch. The film was done with Sony in association with Giving Films as an ODB Films production in association with Mandalay Pictures.
