Like Jews, Christians read Scripture publicly, produced voluminous numbers of texts, and committed remarkable resources to copying and disseminating them widely. In fact, in their eagerness to disseminate Scripture, Christians were at the leading edge of book technology of the second and third centuries.   One of the great successes of past political mobilization against religious persecution, the IRFA, mandated that the US Department of State publish annual reports on religious persecution throughout the world. These reports include thousands of instances of anti-Christian persecution, along with other violations of religious freedom/5(7).

Whereunto there are new additions since the octavo was printed. The Second Persecution, Under Domitian, A.D. The emperor Domitian, who was naturally inclined to cruelty, first slew his brother, and then raised the second persecution against the Christians.

In his rage he put to death some of the Roman senators, some through malice; and others to. Damnatio ad bestias (Latin for "condemnation to beasts") was a form of Roman capital punishment in which the condemned person was killed by wild animals, usually lions or other big cats.

The Tenth Persecution, Under Diocletian, A.D. Under the Roman emperors, commonly called the Era of the Martyrs, was occasioned partly by the increasing number and luxury of the Christians, and the hatred of Galerius, the adopted son of Diocletian, who, being stimulated by his mother, a bigoted pagan, never ceased persuading the emperor to enter upon the persecution, until he had.

The Christian’s Obligation to the Powers That Be () The subject of the Christian’s obligations to civil government was far from academic in Paul’s day.

The Lord Jesus Christ had been executed on the pretext of treason (John ) and Paul himself had been accused of insurrection (Acts21).

A sermon was preached when Cranmer was burned at the stake. Christians have faced severe persecution performed in the name of Yahweh, in the name of Allah, in the name of Marx—and in the name of Jesus.” D. Carson, The Gospel According to John (Grand Rapids: William B.

The persecution of Christians in the New Testament is an important part of the Early Christian narrative which depicts the early Church as being persecuted for their heterodox beliefs by a Jewish establishment in what was then the Roman province of Judea.A more aggressive period of anti-religious persecution began in the mids, following upon the amendments to the anti-religious legislation and the 25th party congress.
