Anti-Christian policies in the Roman Empire occurred intermittently over a period of over two centuries until the year 313 AD when the Roman Emperors Constantine the Great and Licinius jointly promulgated the Edict of Milan which legalised the Christian religion.The persecution of Christians in the Roman Empire was carried out by the state and also by local authorities on a sporadic, ad hoc basis, often at the whims of local communities. Starting in 250, empire-wide persecution took place by decree of the emperor Decius. The edict was in force for eighteen months, during which time some Christians were killed while others apostatised to escape execution.
These persecutions heavily influenced the development of Christianity, shaping Christian theology and the structure of the Church. Among other things, persecution gave rise to many saints‘ cults which may have contributed to the rapid spread of Christianity and sparked written explanations and defenses of the Christian religion.

1 How lovely* your grand tabernacle is,+ O Jehovah of armies!
2 My whole being* yearns, Yes, I am faint with longing, For the courtyards of Jehovah.+
My heart and my flesh shout joyfully to the living God.

PROGRAMS ON WBBR
WBBR broadcast Bible lectures and music. It also carried such programs as “Watching the World.” For this, brothers in the newsroom gathered reports from international news services. Another program had the title “A Young Minister Speaks.” Yet another was called “Home Bible Study Time.” In this program, Witnesses portrayed a model family Bible study. WBBR also broadcast Bible dramas and reenactments of recent court trials involving Jehovah’s people. Those reenactments exposed the clergy as promoters of opposition and turned the spotlight on prejudiced judges.
A MOMENTOUS CONVENTION
The year 1931 saw what was at the time the most extensive radio chain broadcast ever to air. A portion of the momentous convention held July 24-30 in Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A., was transmitted via more than 450 radio stations in Australia, Canada, Europe, and the United States. At this convention we adopted the name Jehovah’s Witnesses.

King Sennacherib of Assyria sent the Rabshakeh to Jerusalem to demand the city’s surrender. The Assyrians used various arguments in an attempt to make the Jews give up without a fight.
Isolation. Egypt will be of little help to you.—Isa 36:6
Intimidation. You do not stand a chance against the powerful Assyrian army.—Isa 36:8, 9
Temptation. Surrendering to Assyria will improve the quality of your life.—Isa 36:16, 17
He did what he reasonably could to prepare the city for the siege
He prayed to Jehovah for deliverance and encouraged the people to do the same
His faith was rewarded when Jehovah sent an angel to strike down 185,000 Assyrian warriors in one night
