To the Point of Shedding Blood: Christian Martyrs in the First Three Centuries
June 21, 2021-June 23, 2021
Jesus resisted evil to the point of shedding His blood, and many, many Christians have followed His example to this day. Not every religion or set of ideas requires the disciple to die. Why did Jesus’ earliest followers do this, under what circumstances, and how did they preach the Gospel as they gave their bodies over to death? We will look at the New Testament and early Christian literature to understand the earliest Christian martyrs.
