Romans 4:25 & 5:2 He was delivered over to death for our sins and then was raised to life to put us right with God. By faith in this, then, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.

You Must Go On No Matter What
Can you imagine if during Christianity's infancy Jesus and his disciples just gave up? After all Christians were considered the enemy because they were going against the Pharisees who were the "experts" on God and his laws. With all of the dangers the word of God via Jesus Christ and the disciples went on any way. They never gave up. No matter how hard they were threatened, killed or ashamed they still continued in the word of God. One reason that comes to mind is that the word of God was finally brought to the everyday man and women. That believing in God, that following his laws were not made just for the "chosen people". The difference being one had to go through Jesus Christ to receive the blessings that God had intended for mankind. Because before Jesus, mankind could not get it right. Man would always fall short. So to forgive mankind of his short comings he provided us with forgiveness, grace, mercy and salvation through Jesus Christ. So the word was spread in a way similar to how fables and stories were passed down generation after generation. Until the words took written form some years after Jesus died.
