Focusing on the emergence of Christianity and its suppression by the Romans in the first century, To The Death provides a riveting fictional account of the historical beginnings of Christianity.In the first century AD, the Jews of Jerusalem rebelled against Roman occupation. The result was one of the bloodiest wars in history. A million Jews died, and thousands starved to death. In 1500 BC, migrant Jews from Egypt invaded Canaan (Palestine) and murdered the entire population, claiming they were acting on a direct order from their God. At the end of the war, the treasures of the Jewish Temple were displayed in Rome, along with thouasnds of captive Jews who would be sold into slavery to celebrate the Roman victory.
