Persecution in the Second Century, Part 3 - Polycarp (The History of Christianity #27)

SCRIPTURE: 2 Corinthians 4:17-18, "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal."

QUOTE: St. Cyprian, Bishop of Carthage, "None of us offers resistance when he is seized, or avenges himself for your unjust violence, although our people are numerous and plentiful…it is not lawful for us to hate, and so we please God more when we render no requital for injury…we repay your hatred with kindness."

TOPIC: "Persecution in the Second Century" (Part 3) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).
