Peter, a Galilean fisherman, and Paul, a Jew from the Diaspora, Pharisee and Roman citizen, are the two pillars of the Roman Church. They see their lives turned upside down by the irruption of a man who says to them: “Follow me. You will be called ‘Peter’” and “Saul, why do you persecute me? “. Simon, who has become Peter, leaves to follow Jesus and found the Church. Saul, who has become Paul, becomes an apostle and evangelizes the pagans of the Mediterranean basin. Peter dies crucified, and Paul, beheaded.
