This is a sad but glorious movie. It takes place in a Roman prison cell. Peter, the old man is waiting for his execution at the hands of Roman soldiers.
67AD- The Emperor Nero Decreed That The Followers Of Jesus Christs Be Hunted And Persecuted For Their Beliefs.
The leaders of this new faith were sought above the rest as rebels against the empire. Imprisoned for being of Jesus Christ. A religious fanatic. Simon Peter of Galilee, the Fisherman.
Peter is in the Roman prison and prays, “Father thank you for this chance to suffer for you. Thy will be done.”
Martinian, the Guard, wants to question Peter about Jesus.
Processus, the other guard on duty, catches them talking but agrees not to report the transgression.
Later a demon visits Peter in his cell. Tempts him. Peter rebukes him with scripture.
Martinian continues his interview with Peter about Jesus… Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one gets to the Father but through Me”… He had power over storms. Healed the lepers. Made the dead rise… I knew him as a man… Peter remembers when he first met Jesus, the man….
Jesus said, “You are Simon, son of John. You will be called Peter. Who do people say that I am?”
James answered, “John the Baptist, or Elijah, mostly a prophet.”
Jesus asked Peter, “Who do you say that I am?”
Peter replied, “You are the Christ, The Son of the Living God.”
They witnessed as Jesus healed many people including his mother-in law.
While in his prison cell, Peter hears a rooster crow. It reminds him of when he denied Jesus three times. He was instantly saddened.
The other guard, Processus, continues the interview. Both guards are becoming more and more intrigued about Jesus as Peter speaks.
As both guards listen, Peter tells the story of the Last Supper. ..They all sat at the table. Laughing. Talking. Because Jesus was still with them. Jesus entered the room. He sat. Prayed. “This is my body. It is broken for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” He passed the bread around to the disciples.
“Drink from this cup all of you. This is my blood of the new covenant which is shed for the forgiveness of sins. Do this in remembrance of me.”
Afterwards, Jesus washes the disciples feet. Then announces a traitor in their midst. A betrayer.
Satan the deceiver had entered into Judas. Promised him great riches for his betrayal. Later, Jesus forgave Judas.
Judas hung himself in the presence of the same demon that was repeatedly in Peter’s cell tempting him.
In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus is captured by the Roman soldiers.
Jesus was crucified.
Martinian now understands that Jesus sacrificed himself for all mankind’s sins. Even his.
Peter saw the empty tomb. The Risen Lord. Peter walked with Him. Talked with Him. Ate with Him. He Is Alive!
Martinian’s wife, Novella, confesses she has already accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior and received his forgiveness for her sins. She wants Peter’s blessing.
Processus and Martinian both accepted Jesus’s forgiveness for their sins and declared him Lord that day.
Novella received Peters blessing for her body so she might have a child.
Saul of Tarsus is being brought into the prison.
Simon Peter says, “Take me to Jesus. I can’t bear to be away from my Lord another minute.” The guards painfully escort Peter to his execution.
Jesus says, “Peace I leave you. My peace I give you. Not as the world gives it, for in this world you will have many troubles. But take heart for I have overcome this world. I am the way. I am the truth. I am the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. Everyone who asks will receive. He who seeks will find. To him who knocks the door will be opened. Do not let your hearts be troubled. Do not be afraid. Remain in my love. Again I say, remain in my love. And surely I am with you always to the very end of the age.
This was a very sad story with a glorious lining. Peter’s life came to an end. The Apostle Paul was next to be executed. Processus and Martinian both received Jesus as Lord and savior and had their sins forgiven.
I hope you enjoyed my review of Apostle Peter and The Last Supper.
