Peter: The Redemption
Peter. Beloved disciple of Jesus Christ. Leader of the apostles. Fearless preacher for the gospel of salvation. Imprisoned at the hands of Nero. Based on the life and last days of the Apostle Peter under the hands of the Roman Emperor Nero comes a story of faith, redemption and self-sacrifice, Peter--The Redemption. Starring John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, One Night With The King) as Peter, Stephen Baldwin (God's Club, Faith of Our Fathers, I'm in Love with a Church Girl) as Emperor Nero, and Steve Byers (Smallville, Immortals, The Man in the High Castle) as Martinian a Roman solider Peter--The Redemption vividly brings to life the last days of the Apostle Peter as he struggles to choose salvation over life.
The superb cast of Peter--The Redemption only benefits with the inclusion of John Rhys-Davies. This Welsh actor has quite the list of films under his belt. His first well known film series was Indiana Jones, but many viewers will know him best for his portrayal of Gimli the dwarf in the beloved Lord of The Rings trilogy. Though known for his famous work in the world of secular entertainment, John Rhys-Davies has also devoted much of his time to Christian based films and filmmakers. Loyal fans may recall his heartfelt portrayal of Mordecai in One Night With The King, a film based on the Biblical book of Esther. In fact, John Rhys-Davis starred in a little known film centered entirely around the making of the King James Bible (2011). He has also worked with smaller Christian film companies on films such as Return To The Hiding Place, the award winning sequel to Billy Graham's movie based on the true story of Corrie ten Boom. In 2015 he starred in Beyond The Mask, a spectacular movie which was written and produced by a small family run Christian film marketing company called Burns Family Studios. John Rhys-Davies career has been marked with blockbuster films, but he still seeks to promote and display the Word of God through the gifts God has given him. His heartfelt performance in Peter--The Redemption will encourage and give hope to viewers of all ages.
Although Stephen Baldwin may never have starred as a dwarf or worked alongside Indiana Jones, the American born actor has some large films to boast of. Like his co-star John Rhys-Davies, however, Stephen Baldwin seeks to use his talents to glorify his creator, and has acted in several Christian films. Older viewers may remember him from I'm In Love With A Church Girl, a story illustrating how God loves and redeems even the types of people who think they are unlovable. He has also worked with Pure Flix (creators of God's Not Dead and Woodlawn) in their film Faith of Our Fathers, a story about two young men who set of to see the Vietnam Memorial and discover the fathers they never knew through a series of letters. In 2015 he starred in God's Club a film revolving around the debate whether or not prayer (or religion) should be allowed in schools. When not acting, Stephen Baldwin uses his other gifts, namely skateboarding, to minister to youth across the nation. In 2004 he even directed and released a film titled "Livin' It" that uses skateboarding to speak the gospel. In Peter--The Redemption Stephen Baldwin stars as the cruel Christian hating Emperor Nero, a dynamic counter force to Peter's extreme faith. His performance will open viewers eyes to the reality of Christianity in the early centuries following Jesus' life.
