PETER – THE REDEMPTION is an inspiring story of love and faith set against the backdrop of Nero’s persecution of the early Christians in Rome.
In 64 AD, after secretly setting fire to the city to create more open land for his palace, the EMPEROR NERO lays the blame on the new Christian sect and orders their arrest. Their leader, the APOSTLE PETER is thrown into the infamous Mamertine prison where he is beaten to secure a confession.
When he is pushed to the brink of death, Nero assigns SUSANNA, a servant of his wife POPPAEA, to keep Peter alive. During her visits to the prison, Susanna develops a relationship with MARTINIAN, a Roman soldier and Peter’s chief jailer. Influenced by both his feelings for Susanna and by the stories and deeds of Peter, Martinian comes to realize that it is not the Christians who are the criminals, but rather his own glorious Emperor.
When Poppaea discovers Susanna to be a secret Christian and has her arrested, Martinian must face a choice between abandoning her to her fate or facing Nero and putting his own career, and life, on the line.
And at the center of the story is Peter who, during his final months in prison, impacted the lives of dozens of soldiers, convicts and jailers. His is a powerful story of courage, a story of unwavering faith. He was truly the rock upon which the new church was built.More Info
