The Big Picture  

It would take someone much more learned than I
to write this commentary!!

    My curiosity started being aroused a few weeks ago when I started hearing stories about the persecution and murder of a group called The Assyrian Church.  I am very embarrassed to admit that I had never heard of this group!  Who were they and why were they being attacked?  I was very surprised to learn that they were one of the very earliest groups to be pushed out of the Christian community.  It happened at The Council of Ephesus in 431 CE.  I found this chart which tells the whole story in a nutshell.  This is "The Big Picture."  If you are as interested in all of this as I am, you'll save this chart and refer to it frequently.

CAN YOU FIND WHERE YOU ARE ON THE CHART?
