This is an important post that everyone who loves Jesus and the Gospel should read. And while it may not be saying much, this may be one of the most important posts I’ve ever published. “I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne” (Revelation 9:6). I couldn’t read it without asking, “Do I love Jesus this much?” It’s also hard to read without tears. May the glory of Jesus be revealed through the blood of His saints. You should keep checking Denny Burk’s site for thoughts about the death of these disciples throughout the week. And though it is linked to Burk’s site, you should also read the letter received by The Voice of the Martyr’s from a church in Turkey.

The Church in Smyrna (“Izmir”), hometown of one of the three martyrs, has recently posted another letter correcting any inaccuracies. But God’s glory is already being revealed as three people are said to have professed Christ since the death of these three saints.
