New Documentary on Paul by Robert Orlando

A Polite Bribe has the shock value of “The DaVinci Code”, but the bigger shock is that it’s likely the real truth about Christianity. Go on the journey of the Apostle Paul presented with great detail by filmmaker Robert Orlando, and in this documentary; hear scholars and historians explore those first decades after the birth of Jesus Christ. Will you conclude that Paul was the man who crafted and wrote Christianity as we know it? It will challenge everything you thought you knew.
A Polite Bribe is thought-provoking, informative, inspiring and eye-opening. A conversation starter about one of the most notable New Testament figures. This movie goes beyond the neatly packaged traditional biblical story of Paul and into a deeper understanding of this iconic figure and the roots of modern day religion.
The artwork in Robert Orlando’s film is exquisite and should be exhibited in the Philadelphia Museum Of Art. Robert’s interviews, with religious academics, is the thread that weaves together the tapestry of the film. Robert has found charismatic and entertaining story-tellers who explain the story of Paul in such a captivating manner that it is appealing and most attractive to people like myself, who do not know the story and who do not subscribe to the beliefs of Christianity.
