Why Christianity Spread so Rapidly and Widely
It is still a mystery why Christianity spread so rapidly and widely across the Roman Empire.
No Bible books give a clear answer to the question. So, the Vatican ascribes the wonder to St. Peter and St. Paul. However, there are no clear gospels or records about their deeds except the Act, etc. Even it is not clear when the Act was written.
However, it is said to be true that first Paul was executed in Rome, and then brother of Christ Jesus James was killed in Jerusalem, and finally Peter was killed by Nero in Rome around 67 AD before the Jewish-Roman War.
So, it is apparent that early followers of Christ Jesus were not afraid of death. If 10 men are engaged in any enterprise without being afraid of death, they could make some great thing. But, if 10,000 men are engaged in any enterprise without being afraid of death, they could make some greater thing.
Put simply, early Christians across the Roman Empire must have believed Christ Jesus as the son of God, which made them unafraid of death. But what elements of early Christianity made them convinced that Christ Jesus was the son of God?
There must have been many miracles among early Christians that were not recorded or told but made them convinced that Christ Jesus was the son of God. Only miracles people personally experienced could have such effect. But what are those untold miracles?
Maybe, 10,000 individual miracles must have occurred to 10,000 early Christians in the Roman Empire (but no miracles might have been admitted by Jewish people).
