Interactive Map Shows How the Gospel Spread

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 09/15/15

What will it look like in 100 years?

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” – Matthew 28:19

And so the apostles of Jesus Christ did, traveling far and wide to preach the Gospel.

The spread of Christianity is arguably the most important movement in history. Every frame of this interactive map, by, represents one year in the last 2000 years and charts “the missionary journeys of the apostles, the outposts of the early church, the hotbeds of persecution, the staging grounds of the Church’s major theological battles, and more.”

What will this map look like in another 50, 100, 1000 years? Each of us will determine a small part of that.
