Charles Spurgeon once said that he could find ten men who would die for the Bible for every one who would read it. This is a portion of a book written by the Jewish historian Josephus (AGAINST APION: Section 8):
Josephus was arguing with some Greeks about the value of having true historical records. The Greek historians all disagreed with each other and accused each other of fabrication, but the Jewish people were normally persecuted for their heritage and its records.
Knowing and trusting the Book enough to be willing to be persecuted for it should be our normal condition as the people whom Yahweh trusts to be His representatives in the earth.
