First Conflicts with the State, Part 3 - Nero (The History of Christianity #23)

SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 9:28, "So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation."

QUOTE: Origen, "To those who ask us whence we have come or whom we have for a leader, we say that we have come in accordance with the counsels of Jesus to cut down our warlike and arrogant swords of argument into ploughshares, and we convert into sickles the spears we formerly used in fighting. For we no longer take ‘sword against a nation,’ nor do we learn ‘any more to make war,’ having become sons of peace for the sake of Jesus, who is our leader, instead of following the ancestral customs in which we were strangers to the covenants."

TOPIC: "First Conflicts with the State" (Part 3) from Justo L. Gonzalez's book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1)
