The Emperor and his In-Laws

For almost two thousand years Rome, Italy has been the historic center of the Christian religion, but in the years following Christ’s death Rome was the center of torture and death for any person professing Christ as their spiritual master instead of the Emperor of Rome. About 300 years after the birth of Jesus a mighty Roman warrior named Constantine rose in power to become the leader of the Roman Empire. He married the daughter of one of the rulers of the Mighty Roman Empire . . . . Her father and her brother would rather have the brother become ruler of the Empire instead of Constantine. His in-laws will try to raise an army to battle the soldiers loyal to Constantine and kill him. Part of Constantine’s in-laws political argument against Constantine is that he has halted the torture and killing of Christians . . . . Constantine has a heart that does not see the need to kill people who are not a military threat to the Empire, and he also has a secret . . . A secret told to him by his father on his death bed. It turns out that Constantine’s mother is a Christian . . . Yes, his Emperor father was part of a mixed marriage – a Roman Emperor married to a Christian girl . . . It would mean death for Constantine if it became known that he was the product of a mixed marriage. One night Emperor Constantine’s father-in-law decides that Constantine must die so that his son can become Emperor, and so the father-in-law sneaks quietly into the bedroom of the Emperor and walks over to his bed where Constantine is sleeping under the royal blankets, and he thrusts a dagger deep into the sleeping body again and again . . . It looks like the end of Constantine, the man who would stop the killing of Christians . . . It looks like the Christian religion, and every Christian follower will die because of this night . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
