      The content of this book is very informative, giving a vast view of history that is deliberately left out of our schools. Full of inspiring tales of real life courage and sacrifice, Foxe's book describes the lives and history of true Christian martyrs, and the evil that was perpetrated by the Vatican - not to defend the true tenets of Christianity - but to ensure its hegemony over all Christians/5(). In this article a study is made of the concept ‘oikodome’ and its derivatives in the New Testament and early Christianity. Hence, in this essay the focus is limited to the use of the term Author: Jacobus Kok.

Re: A List Of New Testament Martyrs: Truly, I'm stunned and shocked. Never heard anyone give a sermon on the death of many of these beloved New Testament saints. It gives new meaning to Jesus' words in John "If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own.

If the reference is to the Zechariah, son of Jehoiada, mentioned in 2 Chronicles, this is a way of Jesus saying “you are responsible for all the martyrs from A to Z.” Abel would have been the first martyr and Zechariah would have been, chronologically, the last martyr in the record of the Old Testament.

For the past two hundred years Biblical scholars have usually assumed that the Hebrew Bible was essentially written and edited in the Persian and Hellenistic periods (the fifth-through-second centuries BCE) Recent archaeological evidence and insights from linguistic anthropology, however, point to the earlier era of the late-Iron Age (eighth-through-sixth centuries BCE) as the formative period Cited by: Meaning.

In its original meaning, the word martyr, meaning witness, was used in the secular sphere as well as in the New Testament of the Bible. The process of bearing witness was not intended to lead to the death of the witness, although it is known from ancient writers (e.g.

Josephus) and from the New Testament that witnesses often died for their testimonies. The history of Christian martyrs, according to the Bible, begins in Acts with the stoning of the apostle Stephen.

Later in the book of Acts, the apostle Paul calls Stephen Jesus' martyr. It says in Acts"And when the blood of your martyr Stephen was shed, I stood there giving my approval and guarding the clothes of those who were killing.

I myself had studied church history before I became a Baptist by conviction, was familiar with Cranmer via Foxe's Book of Martyrs, and was aghast when I read the documentation by Christian.
