Explain how the expansion and influence of the Greek culture became useful to the growth of Christianity. Mention the role played by Alexander the Great.

Pick two of the important ancient empires other than the Greek empire, and briefly describe them.

The Persian empire was at its peak from 550 B.C. to 331 B.C. Persian controlled territory included most of the Middle East, some of Northern Africa, and Turkey. Until conquered by Alexander the Great Persia was unstoppable.
