Theme: Persecuted Christians

Persecuted Christians in the Bible: Creative activities for your children's ministry

Persecution of Christians is a significant theme in the Bible, as well as in Christian history. Jesus Himself warned His followers that they would be persecuted for their faith, and the New Testament recounts the experiences of the early church as they faced persecution from both Jewish and Roman authorities.

Many of the apostles and early Christian leaders were imprisoned, tortured, and even martyred for their faith. However, the Bible also presents persecution as an opportunity for witness and growth in faith, and assures believers of the ultimate victory of God's purposes.

Understanding the theme of persecuted Christians in the Bible offers valuable insights into the nature of suffering, faith, and the ultimate triumph of God's kingdom.

On this page you will find creative ideas, resources and activities relating to persecution which you can use in your kid’s work, kidsmin, Sunday school lessons or Christian elementary school.
