Do You Recall When the Word "Christian" Was First Used?
At First They Were called Learners and Scholars, but at _________________ they were first called Christians, Why?
I believe the term first appears in Greek in the Book of Acts, believed to have been written sometime after 75 AD.
Ironically followers of Christ were labeled atheists by the Romans who persecuted them because they renounced the Roman gods and served their own.
Also a little known fact the letter X was used to represent Christ (for reasons having to do with the Greek language) so Christians were often called Xtians. This led to the adoption of the term X-Mas not by non-believers trying to wage a war on Christmas but by Christians themselves as short-hand for Christmas.
