117 slaves are freed

Christ by Alton S. Tobey

ROME, AD 23

Friends of the wealthy slave owner, Claudius, were unable to explain his sudden release of one hundred and seventeen prime slaves yesterday. One, who declined to be identified, said: “It was totally unlike Claudius. He told me that he had dinner with a Jewish scribe from Damascus who convinced him that all men—even slaves—were sons of God. The scribe even included women as equal partners. Then Claudius released his slaves. I cannot understand such an impractical action on his part.”

The identity of the scribe is not known, but some people believe he is the same scribe who has made an impact on the religious community here. A concentrated effort is being made to locate the scribe for an interview.
