Dickens describes the convict as being a fearful man dressed in grey with a great iron chain around his leg. He seems to have been battered and bruised due to the amount of cuts on his body from nettles and flints etc. This tells us that the convict is in fact a convict and an escaped one at that.

Dickens' description of the first convict in "Great Expectations" portrays him as menacing and desperate, with unkempt appearance and aggressive behavior. This suggests that he is a hardened criminal who has likely experienced a tough life and is willing to go to extreme lengths for self-preservation.

If you were arrested for being a christian would there be enough evidence to convict you?

Yes, because I would have to swear on a Bible to tell the truth and when asked if I believe God is who He says He is and Christ is who He says He is, I'd have to tell the truth. I would, in essence, convict myself.
