2 kinds of faithfulness: a note on Rev 2:10

Be[ing] faithful unto death” could look very differently for two different believers.

For one, it might mean refusing to budge while staring down the barrel of a gun or the edge of a knife. And it might be over really fast. (This was apparently the case with the original readers.)

For another, it might mean 80 years of steady plodding.

I wonder which is harder.
