The Apostle Peter and the Last SupperBy Robert Steffensen February 7th, 2013
This evening I watched a movie called The Apostle Peter and the Last Supper. The movie starts out in Rome with Peter being imprisoned for his faith. One of the Roman Soldiers who is responsible for guarding him takes an interest in hearing Peter’s accounts of Jesus. The soldier begins sneaking into Peter’s cell each day for 3 days to learn a little more. Each time Peter goes into a new story the viewer is transported back and forth between the events that he is describing and the prison cell. He starts out by telling how he met Jesus and goes through several highlights up through the garden of Gethsemane. The Crucifixion and Resurrection are only discussed not seen. A lengthy segment is devoted to the last supper as well as an emphasis on Peter’s denial of Christ and forgiveness. There is also a creepy demon like figure who appears to Peter a few times trying to get him to deny Christ again. The Apostle Peter and the Last Supper is a Prue Flix film and although you can tell it was made on a low budget, the story and acting are both engaging. The story itself while partially fictional contains the message of the gospel and provides an interesting view of the events surrounding the death of Christ. For example during the scene of the last supper Peter as part of his story lays out how each of the disciples might have been feeling or thinking after Jesus told them all that one of them would betray him. I don’t want to give away the ending of the movie, so I will just tell you to check it out for yourself. You can find it in the VOD section under Free and GMovies.
