Power of The Gospel Knows No Limits

Reader comment on item: Iran's Christian Boom

This should not be all that surprising, given that Judaism, then later, minister disciples of the Gospel had many opportunities to witness the power of the Eternal Sovereign of the Jewish nation, from the Persian takeover of the Babylonian days after Nebuchadnezzar's time to the beginning of the Gospel message almost immediately after the witness of Peter to travelers from Persia and Elam.
By the time Islam appeared to spread the Muslim message over the Gospel message by hostile takeover, there had been centuries of Jewish culture in the region and a few hundred years of the message of Messiah before the Crusades.
Going deeper, there are areas in the present day Iran which figure prominently in the prophetical administration of end time circumstances involving Israel; so there really should be no surprise.
It is evidence that the Gospel of the Savior is as powerful as it has ever been and will continue in spite of the obvious obstacles.
