In a time of Roman Empire, Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians, which is similar to what we experience today

Easter is just around the corner. A festival and holiday that is celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c 30 AD.

The New Testament states that the resurrection of Jesus, which Easter celebrates, is a foundation of the Christian faith. The resurrection established Jesus as the powerful Son of God, and is cited as proof that God will judge the world in righteousness.

Most Christians refer to the week before Easter as «Holy Week». This time, a new film called Paul, Apostle of Christ will be released the same week. This film is an upcoming American biblical drama film written by Andrew Hyatt, and starring James Faulkner as Saint Paul and Jim Caviezel as Saint Luke. What happened at that time in a time of a Roman Empire, is similar to whats happening today.

Paul, Apostle of Christ is the story of two men. Luke as a friend and physician, risks his life when he venture into the city of Rome to visit Paul, who is held captive in Nero`s darkest, bleakest prison cell.

But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians, and does not flinch from executing them in the grisliest ways possible.

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 so much, floggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure, yet as he waits for his appointment with death, he is haunted by the shadows of his past misdeeds.

Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten…. and if he has the strength to finish well.

Two men 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.

Their faith challenged an Empire. Their words changed the world.

It is a war between the good and the bad, and whats make people angry is Lucifer.  Jim Caviezel said in a speech earlier this year that he want Lucifer to go back to hell were he belongs.

Lucifer is a controversial angel who some belive is the most evil living being in the universe. Lucifer (the devil) is a metaphor for evil and deceit, and he leads other demons in hell and works to harm human beings.

As the ultimate liar, Lucifer (whose name changed to Satan after his fall) twists spiritual truth with the goal of leading as many people as possible away from God. Many people say that the fallen angels` work has brought only evil and destructive results in the world.
