Main Idea 1:
Augustus issued decrees that gave Roman citizenship to those who lived in the provinces.

Who was Augustus?


He was a strong leader like his great uncle Julius Caesar.
Beginning with his rule, Rome was to enjoy a Roman peace, this peace
lasted for more than 200 years-from 27 B.C.
He issued decrees that gave Roman citizenship to those who lived in the
provinces. It was like an especial protection:
For example: One law said that citizens could not be forced to speak against
themselves in the law courts.

business or
recreation.

A gladiator was
a slave or a
prisoner who
fought, often to
the death, for
the
entertainment
of the citizens.

All across the


empire the
Romans also
built
aqueducts, a
system of
bridges and
canals used to
carry water to
a city.

Main Idea 2:
The early church

The three distinguishing marks


of the early church were:
1.

Separation from the world.

2.

Unconditional love.

3.

Childlike obedience to the


teachings of Jesus Christ.

1. Separation from the


world: "No one can serve
two masters," declared Jesus
to his disciples (Matt. 6:24).
We can not do the things or
sins of the out world. We
need to live our own costums
in Jesus.

2. Unconditional love:
The love of the early Christians wasn't limited simply to their fellow
believers. Christians also lovingly helped non-believers: the poor, the
orphans, the elderly, the sick, the shipwreckedeven their persecutors.
Jesus had said, Love your enemies ... and pray for those who spitefully
use you and persecute you (Matt. 5:44).
3. Childlike obedience to the teachings of Jesus Christ:
To the early Christian, trusting God meant more than a teary-eyed
testimony about the time I came to trust the Lord. It meant believing
that even if obedience to God entailed great suffering, God was
trustworthy to bring a person through it.

3. Childlike obedience to the teachings of Jesus Christ:


To the early Christian, trusting God meant more than a
teary-eyed testimony about the time I came to trust the
Lord. It meant believing that even if obedience to God
entailed great suffering, God was trustworthy to bring a
person through it.
One distinguishing mark of the early Christians was their
childlike, literal obedience to the teachings of Jesus and
the apostles. They didn't feel they had to understand the
reason for a commandment before they would obey it.
