The Life of Apostle Paul with Rick Steves
I recorded this documentary in 2004 in Greece and Turkey while working for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Travel expert and faithful Lutheran Rick Steves came along as on-camera host. Rick also did most of the work on the script. Jim Parks edited the footage.
About two thousand years ago Roman soldiers executed Jesus of Nazareth. The story appeared to be over. But it was just getting started. Within a generation, pockets of Greek, Roman, and Jewish members of a new faith, developed communities throughout the Eastern Mediterranean world.
In time, that new faith, Christianity, became the official religion of the Roman Empire. This is the story of early Christianity’s greatest missionary and leading theologian – the Jewish Pharisee and tentmaker from Tarsus who became the Apostle Paul.
