Christian Martyrs in the Bible for their Faith

A Christian martyr is a person who is killed because of their testimony of Jesus. In early church years, this often occurred through stoning, crucifixion, burning at the stake or other forms of torture and capital punishment. The word "martyr" comes from the Greek word μάρτυς, mártys, which means "witness" or "testimony."
