The value of this video.
This video shows visually how Christianity spread over its first thousand years from a tiny persecuted group in the Middle East to eventually cover much of Europe and beyond. It is interesting to see that Southern Europe, as well as parts of Africa and Asia became Christianized first. It took 600 years for the ancestors of the English to embrace Christianity. The Germans accepted Christian faith at least a century later, and the Russians converted just before 1000 AD. Notice how Christianity once also covered much of the Middle East and North Africa, but was displaced by Islam around 650 AD.
The next segment
This video was created and originally originally posted by Ollie Bye. I will follow up this presentation with another post by the same person featuring a video of the spread of Christianity from 1000 AD to the present. If you are of Christian faith, I think you may find these videos encouraging. If you are not of Christian faith, you may at least learn some facts that you were unaware of. Either way, enjoy.
Meanwhile, tell me what you think, and feel free to share this post with your friends.
