Two thousand years ago as the Good News about Jesus was being spread westward into Europe it encountered a culture and worldview that were vastly different from the Jewish world it came from. In Athen, Greece was the pinnacle of classical philosophy and the cradle of western civilization. It also was overflowing with Greco-Roman pantheism in which literally stood thousands of pagan statues of their gods. The Apostle Paul anguished that the worship of the One True God was being replaced by the worship of these idols. How he presented the Good News to the Greek culture in 51 AD is a model for how we need to speak in our world today.
