Peter and Paul-the best, rendering ever, of "after" Jesus
October 30, 2015
I wrote a review of the newest film (dvd) of the time after Jesus death because I strongly agreed with a reviewer's review, yet will not watch, buy it. I have seen, and followed along in scripture, almost all biblical films since the 80's and they are mostly (not all) empty of the greater consent of studied knowledge and actual histories of the bible. The order of events, stories, timing itself, people, and purposes are often inaccurate or skewed and new (non-biblical) depictions and events are deceptively added, serving to mislead from the truth.
For at least some, knowing biblical history prevents these manipulations and deceptions.
This dvd, Peter and Paul, is the best ever, of this time after the death of Jesus. You can mostly follow the story in the Bible, (most preferably, NIV) in the book of Acts; saying this, like most single films (dvd), they could not include all events of the story, for production constraints.
It simply tells the story, no added bias, prejudices, producer agenda, etc, except of the times themselves. It will bring your understanding of what Jews and a small band of "Christians" and their distinct leaders believed, experienced and endured, to a fuller meaning of what a committed christian life was then, and how it is slowly returning to this time of secular Roman and Jerusalem life (many faiths, gods), an ecumenical (human) doctrine.
Going back to Egypt (the easy way, the wide gate) belies belief and trust in Him, His authority, His sovereignty, and what he personally died for-our sin (disobedience, soul darkness, evil, non-belief) and unfathomably, His mercy that saves us, His salvation, from eventual and actual, destruction; except for the pride that ensnares those, eternally; for them, to the darkness they shall return.
Watch this dvd and hear with your ears and heart, (and read along with scripture) a close reality of these times.
I am still thankful that CBD still sells it.
