We servants that are ready to take the servanthood upon them that Christianity will be base on the only true one God ….

Able wasn’t a martyr he was a victim. A martyr is clearly d fined as someone who is killed for his belief, and refusal to recant that belief.

Thank you Mr. Jones. The dictionary defines a martyr just as you said sir…but this same dictionary says a martyr is “a person who is put to death or endures great suffering on behalf of any belief, principle, or cause” and “a person who undergoes severe or constant suffering” so what did Able do to deserve to die? Was it because he gave God a pleasing sacrifice instead of Cain’s? Yes, a martyr can be someone who’s killed for their faith but not just that alone. People who outwardly don’t obey God don’t usually like those who strive to obey God. The word for “martyr” Witness” in the Greek.

This piece blessed my soul. Many thanks.

Sorry, Mr. Peach, but you can’t call half of these people martyrs for Christ.

For example, Abel and Zechariah, Christ wasn’t even thought about, let alone these two people having died for his sake.

John the Baptist was killed because he criticised the king for his actions. Again, no Christ mentioned to give his life for.

The two witnesses in Revelation? Considering that Revelation is just that, a revelation, they strictly speaking haven’t died, therefore they cannot strictly be considered as giving their life for Christ (since they only had a metaphorical life, not a literal one).

You seem to be writing a lovely piece for a Christian audience, but that loveliness may be at the expense of factual accuracy.

Hello Damien. You are so off the mark here and not being fair to the author of this article. These people lived for God and were martyred for their beliefs in God, so since Jesus is God, and the God of the Old Testament, these did die a martyr’s death by doing what God told them to say. I am sorry you must not believe in God or this article. By your signature, being an atheist, I am not surprised.

Do you consider Jesus Christ a Martyr? I received two different answers. Yes & No….which is it?

Jack Wellman February 5, 2021 at 10:49 am

Jesus willingly gave up His life. A martyr? In a sense, but in the biblical text sense, no.
