The August 2015 issue of Tabletalk considers persecution. Jesus warned us, "If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you." Christians have endured suffering throughout history. Yet Jesus told us to "take heart" for He has "overcome the world." This issue of Tabletalk explains what persecution is, how Christians have experienced persecution, what it looks like around the world, and what the future holds for believers. The issue thereby gives readers a good grasp of what the Bible means by persecution and how we should respond to it.
