    And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?,(Jn. 1:19). He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias. (Jn. 1:23).

    John the Baptist

    Apart from Jesus Christ, John the Baptist is probably the most theologically significant figure in the Gospels. His entrance into the world was marked by angelic proclamation and divine intervention. John's birth not only parallels that of Jesus but echoes the momentous occasion of the birth of Isaac to Abraham and Sarah. John is clearly a pivotal figure in the salvation history of God.

    Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus was born Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus; on 15 December AD 37 He was adopted by the Roman emperor Claudius at the age of 13 and succeeded him on the throne. Nero seems to have been popular with the members of his Praetorian Guard, and with lower-class commoners in Rome and the provinces but was deeply resented by the Roman aristocracy. Most contemporary sources describe him as tyrannical, self-indulgent, and debauched.

    The Kingdom Spreads and Converts Lutetia.

    Lutetia Parisiorum was the capital of the Parisii, a tribe in ancient Gaul. No less than three bathhouses have been identified, proving that Lutetia was pretty large. By the mid-third century, the city had a Christian community.We do not know much about them, but their presence is logical, because one of them is known to have been martyred: Saint Dionysus (Saint-Denis), who was beheaded during the reign of Valerian.

    Rome - Changed By The Kingdom

    By this date, Christianity had already converted a significant but unknown proportion of at least the urban population of the empire including a small number of the elite classes. Constantine ended the intermittent persecution of Christianity with the Edict of Milan, in fact, a quote from a letter of the emperor Licinius by Eusebius, which granted tolerance to all religions, but specifically mentions Christianity.
