Affirm Films has released a trailer, poster and images for the biblical drama Paul, Apostle of Christ, which tells the story of the man who persecuted the early church and then became its greatest evangelist, and stars Jim Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ), James Faulkner (Downton Abbey), Oliver Martinez (S.W.A.T.), Joanne Whalley (A.D. The Bible Continues) and John Lynch (The Secret Garden).
In Paul, Apostle of Christ, Luke (Caviezel) risks his life to visit Paul (Faulkner), who is held captive in a Roman prison under Nero’s rule. Together, they 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.
“Paul, Apostle of Christ brings to life on screen the powerful story of a man who changed the course of history through his committed faith, yet at great cost to himself,” Director and Screenwriter Andrew Hyatt said. “The film shows what a deadly dangerous place the Roman world was for the early Christian church, and it shows how Paul prepared the faithful to continue living out their beliefs in the face of it.”
Paul, Apostle of Christ is set for release on March 23rd 2018.
