MARTYR, Greek, martus, martur, martyr, lit., witness.
1. a person who dies rather than renounce a religion. (In our case
it would be a believer who gladly dies rather than renounce
our Lord Jesus Christ.)
MARTYR, Greek, martus, martur, lit., witness.
Because of its use in connection with Stephen (Acts 22:20) and others
who died for Christ, the word came to mean one who paid the extreme price for
fidelity to Christ. Antipas was a faithful witness(Rev.2:13). The harlot, Babylon,
was drunk with the blood of martyrs (Rev.17:6).
