Many movies entered the coliseum, but thanks to the voting of our Patreon saints, only Gladiator survived. This week we are joined by guest host Jam Watkins, of the Christian metal band Context, as we explore this modern classic. This movie reminded us of the real courage of early Christians as they were cast into the arena. Topics discussed include the power of mobs, jealous brothers, and how this movie provokes in us a desire to live for something transcendent.
