Pastor Adam Barton,
Thanks for this. A great perspective and something I think about often. I have heard the reflexive argument made for modern day martyrs of other religions but the difference is stark...the disciples would have known they were making it up whereas now people are hearing everything third or fourth hand. How could a person endure such torture knowing with 100% confidence that everything they are saying is false? I know I couldn't.

Bryan, you are most welcome. Good point about this situation being differnt than other religous martyrs that didn't witness their "faith" event first hand as the disciples did. Appreciate it,

Pastor Adam Barton,

Once I saw a list of how most of Christ's disciples died and it was very enlightening. It defintitely speaks for something. Every single one of these men (including John, who wasn't killed, but boiled in oil and lived) went to their death for Jesus. Why would they die for something they believed to be a lie? This is a very powerful proof to me that they indeed believed He rose from the dead. Thank you for your thoughts. I wish more people knew this.

Truly inspiring! I never have thought about this until reading you exerpt above. To give up everything I have an follow a complete stranger would require me to have some very convincing proff of deity...not simply a false claim. The to think after following a man to his death they continued to preach his message in spite of bodily harm to themselves...I find that much harder to say that they simply did it for fame and fortune as it clearly i not for that rather they gave up fortune and inherited persecution.
