This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Religion - Nero Persecutes the Christians. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The first persecution of the Church took place in the year 67, under Nero, the 6th emperor of Rome. He reigned for 5 years, as a credible leader, but then gave way to the greatest extravagance of temper, and to the most atrocious barbarian acts against Christians. Among his other diabolical deeds, he ordered his officers, guards, and servants to burn the city of Rome.
Despite these extreme cruelties, Nero's persecution was local and short-lived. However, it was the first official persecution and marked the first time the government distinguished Christians from Jews.
After Nero, it became a capital crime to be a Christian,
The presentation covers the following:
The 1st Persecution
Pity for Christians
