Publisher's Description

This epic network television mini-series brings to life the precarious existence of early Christianity. Violent opposition from without and constant turmoil from within beset the new movement. Two key leaders emerge--Peter and Paul--who struggle to keep the faith alive. This dramatic presentation follows the pair, together and separately, through three epochal decades. Included are the stoning of Stephen, the road to Damascus, their encounter in Jerusalem, their conflicts over how the word of Christ should be spread. Paul's travels to Asia Minor and Greece, Peter and Paul's clashes over Jewish law, and Peter's decision to follow in Paul's courageous footsteps. The drama concludes in Rome in approximately A.D. 64 with the beheading of Paul and the crucifixion of Peter under Emperor Nero.

    Peter and Paul-the best, rendering ever, of "after" Jesus

    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.

    At times, it got a little long. We divided it into 2 sessions of 1 1/2 hours each. It really helped us visualize the persecution, dedication, and calling of Paul and others who helped plant the Christian churches.

    An accurate depiction of the book of Acts

    Long one of my favorite Christian films, "Peter and Paul," originally a 1982 TV mini-series, is a largely accurate depiction of the events transpiring in the Bible's Book of Acts ("The Acts of the Apostles").

    Classic actors Anthony Hopkins and Robert Foxworth, each of whom started their careers on stage, produce stimulating, convincing, and emotive performances as Saul Paulus (Paul) and Simon Peter (Cephas), respectively. Hopkins' performance is reminiscent of many of his previous and succeeding ones: an emotional and intellectual depiction of a character having great conviction. Foxworth is typically potent and resolute in his role, as well. The result is a blend of strong personalities who complement and oppose each other in powerful historical roles.

    Supporting roles are credible and complementary, if not spectacularly executed, costuming is adequate, cinematography is very good, the sound track is excellent, and the script is strong.

    I give this film high marks for overall historical accuracy, as well. Its "creative license," which is necessary to flesh out a biblical motion picture, is not only scripturally consistent, but also highly believable--and this is relatively rare for such a film.

    Overall, I give the film, itself, a rating of 2 1/2 stars out of four--a half-star above its general rating. (Slightly better costuming, same supporting acting, plus greater character development and close-up photography would have raised my rating to 3.) But this does not diminish the impact of this film, as the picture truly enlivens the Book of Acts for the viewer. It renders history more memorable through the powerful audiovisual medium. (And one must be cognizant that this film originally was produced for television--and on a relative shoe-string budget when compared with the likes of the full-scale, high-priced epic "Jesus of Nazareth" [1977].)

    Because of the historical accuracy and vividness of "Peter and Paul," I now find myself better-acquainted with one of my favorite books of Scripture, as well as connecting the film with the biblical book, thus visualizing some scenes as I contemplate the precise details of Acts, and actually read the book, itself. Hence, this film has immeasurably aided me in visually realizing the potency of Scripture.

    I enjoyed the film. I find it a shame that Hollywood does not produce films with the same quality and effects as they do their other films because this film could have been amazing.
