Apostle Paul and the Earliest Churches is a brilliant and illuminating production. Begining with his conversion, it reenacts Paul's missionary journeys on Anatolian soil (modern Turkey).
This film contains an archeological treasury: mosaics, frescoes, statues, amphitheaters, agoras, tmples, and more. The historical, religious, and archeological background of each Anatolian region in which Paul preached the gospel is explained. Yet Apostle Paul is more than an archeological or historical survey; this production's reinactment of the miracles Paul performed, the difficulties Paul encountered, and the persecution Paul faced beckons the viewer to experience with the Apostle himself the birth of the Christian Church.
The film's archeological emphasis is enhanced by 3D animated maps and footage of Antioch on the Orontes, Pisidian Antioch, Ephesus, Tarsus, and other cities important to Paul's ministry. Significant artifacts from a variety of Turkish museums are also discussed.
