A young slave girl, Anna, is rescued and adopted by Christians in 2nd Century Smyrna and befriended by their aged bishop, Polycarp.

As Anna is taught by Polycarp and her new family, she struggles to reconcile her beliefs with those of the Christians. When the Roman proconsul demands that all citizens worship Caesar to show their allegiance to Rome, Polycarp and the Christians must find courage to stand for their faith against the growing threat of persecution. Anna is forced to come to grips with the truth and choose whom she is willing to live–and die–for.

    I loved this movie about standing for truth and being willing to die rather than deny Christ. I watched this and then went and bought it on amazon.

    Loved this!! What a great movie to see true faith, courage and love. To lose your life for God is to find it!

    Polycarp is a bishop in a time when Christians are being persecuted. Anna is an orphan and is saved from slavery by Polycarp and his family. She isn’t sure about what she believes but she learns from Polycarp, and the rest of the family. As the Christians are being forced to worship Caesar, they find the courage to stand up for their rights to worship God. They want to be able to have Christ as the center of their lives. They were willing to die instead of deny their faith. Something in this movie that I found interesting is that Polycarp was a disciple of John. Another interesting thing to me was when they try burn Polycarp at the stake the fire doesn’t burn him. What I was thinking about during this movie is that when we put Christ at the center of our lives, He does not forsake us.
