Synopsis:

Paul (Faulkner), who goes from the most infamous persecutor of Christians to Christ’s most influential apostle, is spending his last days in a dark and bleak prison cell awaiting execution by Emperor Nero. Luke(Caviezel), his friend and physician, risks his life when he ventures into Rome to visit him. Paul is under the watchful eye of Mauritius (Martinez), the prison's prefect, who seeks to understand how this broken old man can pose such a threat. But before Paul's death sentence can be enacted, 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. Their faith challenged an empire. But their words changed the world.

Review:
Dad picked up the movie as soon as I opened the package, so this is his review!

Excellent movie! Your could tell how involved the actors were with their characters ! For example, Jim went from playing Christ in previous movie to playing Luke in this movie, but his performance is so adept that you now see him ONLY as Luke. Jame's Paul is so intense, that you feel like you are there with him, awaiting his execution. This is the story that never seems to see film, but it is a very important one, as it shows how much of a threat Paul was to Rome, even in his old age. The movie shows how Luke decided to take up his mantle and continue his work, which eventually led to Rome's downfall, and the rise of Christianity. It's a very good film and I would recommend that all Christians view it together as a family. It would be great for church bible studies as well!
