The First Council of Nicaea

Few events in the history of the world have had so profound an impact than the relatively short ecumenical council of Nicaea in 325 A.D. Constantine the Great seeks to preserve the fragile unity of his empire even as the Church threatens to be torn apart over the question of how God the Father and God the Son relate to one another. The First Council of Nicaea is not a political maneuver by wily politicians, the caricature which crops up especially today, but a bold and concise confession of the truth in the face of overwhelming odds. Join us as we discuss the historical background of this council and why this historical event shows that God continues to work in history to preserve His Church.
