The Prologue is the first chapter of The Life and Times.
The Chapter begins with James Potter being held at wand-point by an unknown antagonist. James reminisces back to a conversation he'd had with Lily Evans in their sixth year when she told him "No one laughs at God when they're staring down the end of a wand." James realizes the truth in her statement and defies his attacker.
