    “The Bible (especially the New Testament) was written by persecuted believers to persecuted believers. This context cannot be ignored without it having profoundly negative implications for how we read and apply the Bible and how we follow Christ individually and corporately. A cross-centered gospel requires cross-carrying messengers.”
    –Glenn M. Penner, from In the Shadow of the Cross

    Two brothers present an offering to the Lord. One is a “keeper of sheep,” the other a “worker of the ground.” One of the offerings is acceptable to God; the other is not. This results in one brother rising up against the other and killing him. Within the initial four chapters of the Bible, we witness the first act of martyrdom (or religious persecution): Cain killing Abel (Genesis 4:2-8).

    Throughout the Scripture (Old and New Testament), the trials and persecutions of those who chose to live godly are revealed. From Cain to the prophets, from John the Baptist to the disciples, the world has always rejected (the) Truth.
