64 Nero kicks his wife Poppaea to deathJuly, 64 1st Persecution of Christians, under Nero.  When Rome burned for six days, Nero (54-68) blamed the Christians.  In 62, Nero had married Poppea Sabina, a proselyte to Judaism.  Of Nero’s persecution, Tacitus wrote, “First Nero had self-acknowledged Christians arrested.  Then, on their information, large numbers of others were condemned.  ...Their deaths were made farcical.  Dressed in wild animal’s skins, they were torn to pieces by dogs, or crucified, or made into torches to be ignited after dark as substitutes for daylight.”  MEDIA

66 Jewish rebellion began and war between the Romans and Jews ensued.  Jerusalem was taken in 70 and destroyed, as was Herod’s temple.  Later, in the second century, Justin Martyr would teach that this destruction was the judgment of God upon a nation that had rejected its Messiah and failed to discern that, under the new dispensation, the temple sacrifices were abrogated.
  • 67 –––––– The Jewish leader Josephus surrenders to the Romans at Jotapata. 68 –––––– Nero declared public enemy by the Senate, commits suicide, thereby ending the dynasty of Augustus. Galba named Emperor.

. 5.  Letters between Pliny and Trajan during the second decade of the second century.  Pliny is a provincial governor and writes to the emperor Trajan for instructions on how to deal with Christians.  Trajan replies that “they are not to be sought out nor were anonymous denunciations to be acted on.  But once then have been identified and have refused to stop their illicit cult, they are to be executed.  The problem seems to be obstinacy  more than the threat of a rival cult.”
