Per the IMDb, it's Titanic:

https://m.imdb.com/list/ls053826112/
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

Nope.

But considering a lot of those are distributed by religious organisations to schools, prisons, those in neef, etc., etc., those claims are easily passed off.

RE: Seeking meaningful advice from atheists
It doesn't have to be divine to be popular, but perhaps there's something about this book that draws so many people to it. If I'm not mistaken the Tao Te Ching is the second most translated and widely distributed book of all time. I've listened to it a few times and I find that it speaks to a natural and spiritual truth that resonates within myself. So even if the Bible were the 3rd or 4th most distributed book (minus all the mass-production from wealthy catholics and churches) odds are there is something about it that draws so many to it with such devotion.

Think of how many religious hacks have tried and failed to write manuscripts which are now lost, forgotten or buried. Think of how many others tried to write a letter that was even one half as successful as Romans.

Why are so many willing to die for this Christ fellow and not other false, dead gods such as Zeus, Thor or Ra?

Well then you better get busy.worshipping Allah - because a number of his followers are happy to strap on some explosives and blow people up kamakaze style over some fucking cartoons....

Your Jesus fans are pikers in the devotion regard.....

Appealing to the masses, great.

At one time the masses thought the world was flat.

Who says others aren't and weren't prepared to die for those religions?

I'm sure many were.

The difference between your religion and their's is not just willingness to die for it, but willingness to kill for it.

That's how Islam and Christianity have been spread in the past.

No, it has to do with the chokehold the RCC held on nearly everything back in those days, preying on the intentionally uneducated populace for fun and profit.
If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.
