Murphysboro Centuries, 2nd sacred

Justin Martyr
- died c. 165 in Rome - wrote an apology in 153, also the Dialogue with Trypho, the first attempt in writing to make clear the difference between Christianity and Judaism
- was lawyer, and saw Christianity as a “new law,” and Christ as a teacher of how to live a moral life - also said that Christians should be punished for crimes (if any) but not for simply bearing the name of “Christian”
