In these two programs, Rick Steves takes us on location to explore the lives of two great apostles.
The Life of Apostle Paul
Travel with public television host Rick Steves to modern-day Turkey and Greece where he recalls what happened to Paul in places such as Ephesus, Philippi, Athens and Corinth. See the ruins of buildings where Paul spoke and places in which early Christians worshiped. The Life of Apostle Paul helps us appreciate the story of this man, Paul, whose personal experience of the Risen Christ turned his life around. From persecuting members of the Jesus movement, Paul becomes the movement's primary spokesperson and the one most responsible for spreading the Good News of God's amazing grace and our everlasting life in Jesus Christ. Today, Paul's written words continue to inspire both committed Christians and those who are looking for God's presence in their lives and the world. (40 minutes)
The Life of Apostle Peter
Rick Steves follows the story of the Apostle Peter from his early days as a fisherman, through his three-year adventure with Jesus to the tumultuous events surrounding Jesus' death and resurrection.
Scholars from Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio, provide background as Rick weaves together the Apostle's life. The video recounts Peter's transformation from fisherman to dynamic leader of the early church and the legend of his martyrdom in Rome. Find out why Christians everywhere look to Peter as a model for what it means to be a follower of Jesus. (29 minutes)
