In a made up verbal exchange between Peter and Saul of Tarsus, Saul quotes Deut 21:23 (“he who is hanged is accursed of God”). Peter’s response essentially is that Paul is “blind” and cannot know Christ, because “no one can come to Christ unless the Father who sent Me draws him” (paraphrase of John 6:44).

So, the makers of A.D. may be a bunch of Unitarian heretics, but at least they got this one right!
