I’m a huge fan of the History of Rome podcast. I’m still about 10 months behind, but gaining ground.
Last night I listened to the podcast that took us through the final years of Tiberius’ reign.
The last minute of the podcast takes this turn, which I found an interesting assessment:
I will close this week by mentioning that around this time a man claiming to be the son of God was executed in the far off province of Judea. The crucifixion of the man, Jesus Christ, had absolutely no immediate impact on anything. But in just a few years, after a dramatic revelatory vision on the road to the Syrian city of Damascus, a man by the name of Saul will turn the execution into one of the most important events in world history.
