Jesus transforms lives. One of the most radical transformations in the Bible was that of the apostle Paul, who went from an enemy of the faith to its great defender. This transformation intrigued New Testament scholar Con Campbell so much that he decided to trace Paul’s life and missionary journeys from Jerusalem across the Mediterranean world to Rome. In this seven-part series, Con searches for answers to help him better understand Paul’s personality and passion. Join Con on this travelogue-style adventure so you can better know Paul and the profound effect he had on Christianity.
In Pursuit of Paul is an incredible series spanning seven episodes and chronicling the important locations and events in the Apostle Paul’s life. It features host Constantine Campbell, author of Paul and Union with Christ and professor at the Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, who travels from Rome to Athens. In addition, he sails on the Mediterranean Sea, takes us to the Road to Damascus, where Paul was converted, and even to the Adriatic Sea where Paul was given words of hope before a shipwreck, as recorded in Acts chapter 27.
This amazing series elaborates on biblical passages, shows off the surviving buildings from Paul’s day, including churches, monuments and statues, and showcases breathtaking views of majestic mountains, blue seas, and cities bursting with life and energy. Campbell interviews various experts in the area, such as a ship’s captain who takes him out to sea and explains what life on the sea would have been like in Paul’s day. The various people that touched Paul’s life are explored as well—people like Barnabas, Silas and young Timothy. And a fascinating part of the series includes a look at the “prison” epistles, the ones Paul wrote while in jail.
The Dove Take: This wonderful series will furnish the viewer with fresh reminders of Paul’s writings and life, not to mention shed new light on the customs of the day and the world in which Paul traveled and preached so long ago. Yet his message of new life through Christ remains as contemporary as today’s newspaper. This is a video series that educates, enlightens, and entertains with its fascinating locations and history. We are delighted to award it our Faith Friendly All Ages Seal.
