Peter and Paul's teachings of love & chastity were a 'sore' spot for Nero. Nero 's reason for hating them so much! Even his own wife had been influenced by the 'word of God'.

Quote:

And Peter saying this and such-like, the most part of the people believed. And it happened also that Nero's wife Libia, and the yoke-fellow of Agrippa the prefect, Agrippina by name, thus believed, so that also they went away from beside their own husbands. And on account of the teaching of Paul, many, despising military life, clung to God; so that even from the emperor's bed-chamber some came to him, and having become Christians, were no longer willing to return to the army or the palace.

I never had read this before....it tells the story up to the death of Paul & Peter. Very chilling and makes the bible times so real....read in it's entirety below:
