Actor Jim Caviezel, who stars in the upcoming film “Paul, Apostle of Christ,” explains the significance of Saul of Tarsus’ transformation into one of Jesus’ apostles and what it means to be great in God’s eyes.
“The name Saul means great one,” Caviezel explained while on the set of his upcoming Bible epic. “And Paul, the name, just by one change of a letter, means little one.”
“In order for us to be great in the eyes of God, we have to become very small,” he said.
The movie brings to life the story of Saul of Tarsus, who was known for persecuting and murdering Christians but went on to become one of the most powerful and important figures of the Church after he enountered Jesus on the road to Damascus.
“The survival of Christianity rest with just a couple of people,” Caviezel said, referring to the apostles.
