Crying Wolf: Christian Martyr Stories False, Largely Fictional says Christian Academic
Commonly referred to as the ‘martyrologies‘ by scholarship, these are the stories, and oral traditions descended from the earliest Christians concerning their persecution by Roman authorities during the first 30 – 50 years of the post-Christ, Messianic Judaic Graeco Roman movement. These stories served as heart wrenching, emotional tales to spur on ‘faith revivals’ and to win conversions at that time. We see many missionaries currently using this means of emotional propaganda to gain sympathy for their faith in trying to persuade ignorant and soft hearted individuals into buying into their misinformation for either proselytizing or for donations.
