I think you mean: "Why were Christians persecuted - "

They were not only persecuted in the first three centuries, but have always been persecuted, right up to the present day. And it is because their master, Jesus was persecuted - A disciple is not above his master!

In Matthew 5 we see that there is a blessing attached to persecutation for Jesus sake, and this state is quite normal for Jesus followers. -

10. Blessed [are] they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11. Blessed are ye, when [men] shall revile you, and persecute [you], and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great [is] your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Three centuries is 300 years, so 300 + 79 would be 379 years.

Sachin Tendulkar, in 280 first-class matches as of January 2011, has made 78 centuries. His first, an innings of 100 not out, came in the first innings of his first-class debut, for Bombay against Gujarat. By contrast, it was almost three and a half years before his maiden first-class duck, in the 1992 County Championship for Yorkshire against Hampshire.

Christians suffered sporadic persecution in the first three centuries A.D., until the conversion of the Emperor Constantine in 312 A.D. It became the official religion of the Empire in 380 A.D.

Your question is much too broad to admit of an answer. I mean Catholicism's effect on the Roman empire in the first three centuries was so profound that it completely supplanted Roman culture and society. Plus Catholicism has been around for twenty centuries now, in most countries of the world.

Three score and 9 centuries would be 3 X 20 + 9 = 69 centuries, or 6,900 years. A score is simply 20, just as a dozen is 12. A score of years would be 20 years, four score and seven apples would be 4 X 20 + 7 = 87 apples.

A century is 100 years. So, to get your answer, you multiply 100 times 35, which is 3500. So, 35 centuries is 3500 (three thousand five hundred) years.
