The Bible: Paul of TarsusThe story of the apostle who spread the teachings of Christ far and wide.
“Paul of Tarsus” tells the story of Saul of Tarsus, persecutor of Christians, who became the apostle Paul after Jesus appeared to him in a vision.
As one of the first Christian missionaries, Paul led an adventurous and dangerous life. He was imprisoned, flogged, stoned, beaten with rods, shipwrecked, attacked by bandits and enemies of the faith.
In spite of his unending hardships, he persevered in his struggle against ignorance and intolerance. ‘For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against…the powers of this dark world…' (Ephesians 6:12).
Shot in the Moroccan desert in the summer of 2000, “Paul of Tarsus” is directed by Roger Young and features Johannes Brandrup, Thomas Lockyer, Barbora Bobulova, and Franco Nero in the leading roles.
