You may remember how the ancient philosopher Socrates was condemned to death by the citizens of Athens and sentenced to execution by poisoning. John Stott, the famous Bible teacher, has compared the death of Jesus to the death of Socrates. He says: “Socrates in the prison cell in Athens, according to Plato’s account, took his cup of hemlock without trembling or changing colour or expression. He then raised the cup to his lips and very cheerfully and quietly drained it. When his friends burst into tears he rebuked them for their absurd behaviour and urged them to keep quiet and to be brave. He died without fear, sorrow, or protest. So,” asks John Stott, “was Socrates braver than Jesus, or were their cups filled with different poisons?”
