Director Roger Young (JOSEPH AND JESUS) presents this dramatic television miniseries that recounts the life of Paul (Johannes Brandrup) the Apostle of Jesus Christ. Originally known as Paul of Tarsus, Paul tortured and persecuted Christians until he experienced a vision of Jesus that forever changed his life. After converting to Christianity, Paul suffered persecution and imprisonment, but never stopped trying to spread the teachings of Christ. Notably, this program was shot on location in the Moroccan desert.
He was originally a powerful and implacable enemy of Jesus, determined to stop the spread of Christ’s message. His dramatic conversion changed the course of history. From his education in Jerusalem under the Rabii Gamaliel to his exhortations on behalf of Christianity throughout the Mediterranean, The Story of Paul the Apostle explores the life and legacy of the greatest missionary of the early Church. Theologians reflect on the importance of his upbringing to his success in spreading the Word, and in-depth analysis of his writings – some of the earliest Christian documents extant – shed light not just on the origins of Christianity, but in the man who helped ensure its survival.
Apostle Paul's life from his persecution of the church to his many missionary journeys, and the imprisonments he suffered at the hands of those with whom he once aligned himself.
