Movie Theology—Paul, Apostle of Christ

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 | 6:30pm

“Where Sin Abounds…Grace Abounds More”

Before Paul, Apostle of Christ leaves our local movie theaters, go see it so we can gather in Bethlehem Chapel for a stimulating discussion and another delicious, catered dinner. Canon Vicar Dana Corsello and Deacon Harvey Bale will lead the discussion. Harvey describes it as a theological action story worth seeing. And if you can’t get enough of Paul (or Harvey!) then please join Harvey’s bible study on the Acts of the Apostles which begins April 18.

Synopsis: Paul, Apostle of Christ is the story of two men. Luke, a friend and physician, risks his life when he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul who is held captive in Nero’s darkest, bleakest prison. Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians and does not flinch from gruesome public executions. 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. Bound in chains, Paul’s struggle is internal. He has survived floggings, a stoning, a shipwreck, starvation and exposure, yet what haunts him is his past misdeeds as a persecuting zealot. Both Paul and Luke struggle against a corrupt emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread his message to the world.

See the movie and then join the discussion and meal, Tuesday, May 15, 6:30 pm, Bethlehem Chapel. Even if you are not able to stay for the discussion, please join us for our congregation meal and fellowship.
