Kids Talk Church History Podcast

Kids Talk Church History is a one-of-a-kind podcast where kids investigate the history of the Church. Over two thousand years ago, Jesus said: “I will build my church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.” How has Jesus built and preserved His Church against all odds? Come with us on a trip through history to find the answer on Kids Talk Church History—a podcast in partnership with the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals.

Blandina and Persecution in the Roman Empire

Following the long story of Christ's church, Lucy, Lucas, and Trinity talk about the first mass persecution of Christians, the courage of Blandina and her friends, and what this meant for the church. They also discuss persecution in general and how Christ is keeping His promise of preserving His church when others try to destroy it. They share their questions with Dr. Richard Bishop, Registrar and Director of Institutional Research at Westminster Seminary California. Tune in to find out why the Romans persecuted Christians, whether Christians really hid in catacombs, and more.
