This article contains a chronology of the Jewish persecution of Christians.

Persecution by century

1st century

In New Testament, it is revealed that it was Jews who killed Jesus Christ, the prophets sent to them by God, and persecuted the followers of Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonians 2:14-16, Acts 7:52-53). Jesus Christ tells that Jerusalem killed the prophets and stone those sent by God (Luke 13:34, Matthew 23:37). In terms of killing prophets, Jesus Christ points out that for surely no prophet can die outside Jerusalem (Luke 13:33). Jesus Christ tells the scribes and the Pharisees how they testify against themselves that they are the descendants of those who murdered the prophets (Matthew 23:31). Jesus Christ tells the scribes and the pharisees that he will send to them prophets and sages and teachers. Some of them they will kill and crucify; others they will flog in their synagogues and pursue from town to town (Matthew 23:34). It must be noted that Stephen was killed by Jews in Acts 7 and James the brother of John was killed by Jewish King Herod with the support of Jews in Acts 12. In Antiquities of Jews 20:9:1, Jewish Priest Josephus mentions about how Jews killed Apostle James (who was the brother of Jesus Christ) and others with him.

It must be noted that Jesus Christ calls his generation in first century Israel as "wicked/sinful and adulterous generation" (Matthew 12:39, Matthew 16:4, Mark 8:38, etc.) on several occasions.

Jewish Priest Josephus agrees with Jesus Christ on the wickedness of that generation. "I shall therefore speak my mind here at once briefly: — that neither did any other city suffer such miseries, nor did any age ever breed a generation more fruitful in wickedness than this was, from the beginning of the world." (Josephus' Jewish Wars V, 10:5).

2nd century

  • 132 — Judaea Province, Roman Empire. Rabbi Akiva ben Joseph claims that Simon Bar Kokhba is the "messiah". Christians reject this claim and refuse to join in the Bar Kokhba terror campaign against the Roman Empire. As a result the Jews murdered many Christians. Bar Kochba ordered Christians to be executed if they would not deny and curse Jesus Christ. According to Justin Martyr, "The Jews were behind all the persecutions of the Christians. They wandered through the country everywhere hating and undermining the Christian faith."
