Perpetua holds a special place in Christian history. Martyred about 200A.D., this remarkable witness to Christ was also the first Christianwoman known to have left behind a major piece of writing.In 203 A.D. Carthage, North Africa, a young mother and new believer is imprisoned, charged with being a Christian, a traitor to the Roman Gods. in order to gain her freedom, all Perpetua needs to do is offer a pinch of incense to the gods of Rome, just like every other good citizen. With the one simple act she will gain her freedom and will return to a life of comfort. As her father pleads with her to think of her baby and the family's good reputation, Perpetua rises to face the Roman Pro-counsel. She has made her choice and there is no turning back. Watch as Perpetua's resolve is tested again and again by those opposed to her and the rest of the small group known as "Christians."The Perpetua story is one of the most important stories from early church history that served as an inspiration to believers for centuries.Special Features:åÊåÊåÊåÊ* English and Spanish languages with optional English subtitlesåÊåÊåÊåÊ* Documentaryfeaturing Early Church experts Dr. Rex Butler and Dr. John Mark Yeats, filmed in TunisiaåÊåÊåÊåÊ* Comprehensive leader's guide with four lesson plans, background information, and moreåÊåÊåÊåÊ* Reproducible student handouts, including comprehension and discussion questions, puzzles, activities, coloring, and more Free: Leader Guide | Student Guide
