In the year 202 AD, the Roman emperor has decreed that there shall be no new Christians.
Despite a ban on Christianity, men and women still come to Christ, risking execution for doing so. Among the new believers is a privileged young mother named Perpetua. When the Roman soldiers swoop into a peaceful meeting of believers, they arrest all the new believers who are preparing for baptism. Perpetua is arrested and so is her pregnant slave Felicity.
Through her diary, Perpetua leaves a written record of their ordeal and the many ways the Lord comforts them.
It is said that many in Carthage found Christ and entered the Church because of the witness of Perpetua, Felicity, and their companions. This episode of Torchlighters encourages each of us to make faith in God our highest priority and to not be swayed by outside forces. Perpetua's faith and actions were radical in her time, and she continues to challenge believers today to walk more fully with the Lord.
