Zoom webinar in english: «How the Bible survived the Roman Empire» by Paul Aitkenhead
juni 15 @ 18:00 - 19:00
The Bible is a book that has survived against all odds, many attempts to stop its use and distribution. Emperors in the Roman Empire commanded a gruesome persecution of the first Christian which lasted until the middle of the fourth century. Bibles were burned and many people suffered death as martyrs because of their faith. Why were the Christians the object of such hate in an otherwise tolerant society, and why was the Bible considered so dangerous? It is a fascinating story about emperors like Nero, Domitian and Diocletian who tried to force people to renounce their beliefs, about people who showed integrity in the face of persecution and how the mightiest empire in the world could not stop a book. It is a story we can still learn from today.
