Alice Ross Notes on Chap 4,5,& 6 When the Church was Young Chapter 4 Ignatius was the bishop of a notable place influenced by 3 apostles, the city where Jesus’s disciples had been called Christians for the first time Ignatius was Peter’s second successor as a leader of a church. And he effectively opens a window into the soul of a Christian on the eve of martyrdom. Often in a crisis or natural disaster people would look for a reason for the God’s anger and would often blame Christians because they refused to worship any god except for their own and they would be brutally punished. Instead of persecuting Ignatius right there and then he was sentenced to fight wild beasts in Rome for the pleasure of the emperor. Was chained to 10 men and marched until he got on a ship. Christians encouraged him and would kiss his chains of a holy person who was going to die for Christ. He was a man in love with Jesus Christ and in his condemnation he saw the opportunity to give witness to the Jesus.
