Paul, Apostle of Christ – Coming to Theaters March 23rd, 2018
*UPDATE: As of March 13th, there are now locations in Grand Rapids that will be showing this highly anticipated movie: Celebration Cinema North, South and at Rivertown. Please click the red link below for locations, show times and to purchase tickets in advance.
ABOUT THE FILM
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. Paul is a captive in Nero’s darkest, bleakest prison cell. But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians. He does not flinch from executing them in the grisliest ways possible. Before Paul is put to death, 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 is a survivor of so much—floggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure. Yet as he waits for his appointment with death, the shadows of his past misdeeds haunt him. Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten. And if he has the strength to finish well.
Two men struggle against an evil emperor and the frailties of the human spirit. They do so in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread their message to the world.
Unfortunately, at the time of this post, there are no showings scheduled for the greater Grand Rapids area. The closest is Kalamazoo. However, they said more showings in theaters throughout the area will be added daily so check back often! In the meantime, please click here for more information about the movie, locations and times of showings that will be playing.
