Apostle Peter and the Last Supper DVD
The year is 67 A.D. The place is Rome. For thirteen years Emperor Nero has been ruthlessly hunting down followers of "the way,"å? and now he has caught one of their leaders. Peter. But Peter has not been shaken by Nero's thirteen years of terror. For he has been following a higher Lord longer than Nero has held the reigns of the Roman Empire. From Pure Flix Entertainment comes a story of the last days of Peter the ApostleåÊApostle Peter and the Last Supper. Starring Bruce Marchiano (The Gospel According to Matthew, Revelation Road), Laurence Fuller, Sarah Prikryl (Revelation Road), Robert Loggia, and Ryan Alosio. A story of strength, courage, and redemption. The story of the gospel through the eyes of the apostle Peter.
He has given his life for the sake of the gospel. The fiery young man whom Jesus chose to be his disciple; the courageous young man who attacked a Roman for the sake of his teacher; the fallen young man who denied his Lord has turned his passion into an unshakable faith. He has indeed become "the rock."å? Yet now, in the film Apostle Peter and the Last Supper, that young man is no longer young. He is old, he is dying. He is imprisoned somewhere in a forgotten cell. Yet, his faith lives on. His courage, and faith have not weakened. They have grown stronger.
It is his faith that Nero fears in the film Apostle Peter and the Last Supper. And it is for his faith that Peter (played by Roberrt Loggia) has been imprisoned. It is his faith that intrigues the curiosity of one of his guards a young Roman named Martinian (played by Laurence Fuller). Martinian confidently tells Peter that he would never believe in something that would cause him to land in jail, but as Peter's calm confidence, quiet kindness, and loving faith continue Martinian finds himself more intrigued. Through a series of flashbacks Peter tells the story of his life and the gospel with his young Roman captor. Will Peter's reflections and story be enough to save Martinian and his wife Novella (played by Sarah Prikryl)?
Power of The Gospel
The film Apostle Peter and the Last Supper is filled with many wonderful lessons and themes viewers of all ages can learn from and be encouraged by. Not the least of these, is the reminder of the power of the gospel. The gospel can break through walls both real and figurative. It can stand against some of the most powerful forces of history take the Emperor Nero and the entire Roman Empire for example. It can reach hearts determined to not believe take the young Roman Martinian for example. It can take the most fiery, misdirected hearts and turn them into hearts of gentleness, compassion, and kindness, take Peter for example. The film Apostle Peter and the Last Supper will encourage believers of all ages with a powerful reminder that the gospel cannot be hindered. It cannot be stopped by armies, emperors, decisions, stubbornness, pride, or difficulty. God's message of good news can reach beyond even the strongest of barriers and transform lives.
Another wonderful theme in the film Apostle Peter and the Last Supper is acceptance. Both Peter and Martinian were young, foolish, and fallen when they first heard the gospel. Both acted in violence. Both lied. Both lived in unbelief. They were both proud fallen men. Yet, God in his good grace was willing to accept them as they were. In their fallen state he was willing to work on their heart and turn them into men that could move mountains for the sake of the gospel. The film Apostle Peter and the Last Supper is a moving reminder that we are all accepted to matter what our backgrounds are and no matter how strong our faith. God accepts us whether we be a Jewish zealot or a Roman guard.
As Peter tells his young Roman guard in the film Apostle Peter and the Last Supper, "The Lord has given you a choice."å? For Martinian that choice was whether or not to follow Jesus and believe Peter's story of hope. For Peter, that choice was to continue steadfast in hope and faith in the midst of great darkness. As the film Apostle Peter and the Last Supper wonderfully illustrates, we all have choices. To believe or walk away. To listen or close our ears. To stand boldly, or disown our master. To claim our faith or hide behind fear. Our lives are filled with choices both big and small that ultimately point to our faith. Do we really believe? Do we believe we are saved? Redeemed? Rescued? That God has our back? The film Apostle Peter and the Last Supper is a wonderful reminder to viewers of all ages that every choice we make, just as Peter learned, is in some small way either honoring or running from our Lord and Savior.
The film Apostle Peter and the Last Supper vividly brings to life the story of the apostle Peter. As you watch Peter share the story of hope with Martinian you will see the story of the gospel through the eyes of one of Jesus' closest disciples. A story of hope, acceptance, healing, redemption, and grace, the film Apostle Peter and the Last Supper will encourage and challenge the faith of viewers both old and young alike. Journey back to the Roman empire as you encounter a dying man with a living faith.
