    Contributed by Chris Appleby on Oct 25, 2005
    based on 13 ratings
     | 6,315 views

    Paul takes the context of a pagan city and uses their apparent spiritual thirst to tell them about Jesus and his rescue from the judgement to come.

    Here’s Paul, left alone in Athens, the cultural capital of the world. How do you think he’d be feeling? Overwhelmed? Excited? Fascinated? Imagine this is you, not in Athens, but in New York or Paris or Rome or Berlin? How would you be feeling? Like you couldn’t wait to get out and start exploring? ...read more

  • The Work In Athens Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on May 2, 2017
     | 6,940 views

    Paul works among Gentiles for eighteen months in Corinth and for nearly three years in Ephesus, but no example of his preaching is given. The reason is that it has already been given—in Athens, in the very center of Gentile culture and intellect.

  • Lead Others To Know God

    based on 19 ratings
     | 6,159 views

    The Apostle Paul’s message to the men of Athens at the Areopagus gives us a model for sharing Christ with others. We start with their natural knowledge of God and transition to the revealed knowledge of God.

    What is the “natural knowledge” of God? Since our “examination / confirmation Sunday” is just over a month away I hope that one of our confirmands can answer that question. What is the “natural knowledge” of God? The “natural knowledge” of God is what all people know about God from nature and ...read more

     | 3,779 views

    Paul's message before the Areopagus forms the basis for a study of how to approach an intellectual audience. This knowledge is necessary if we are to succeed in presenting the Faith in the midst of our world today. This is the substance of a radio message at Easter.

    “Paul, standing in the midst of the Areopagus, said: ‘Men of Athens, I perceive that in every way you are very religious. For as I passed along and observed the objects of your worship, I found also an altar with this inscription: “To the unknown god.” What therefore you worship as unknown, this ...read more

    Ardent religious activity and a high and lofty intellect fall far short of the righteousness God requires.

    Paul looked for ways to share the Gospel in a most unlikely place. He gave them something to think about!

    Our text is from Acts, chapter 17, and here is the background. Paul has left Philippi, as written in Acts 16, and now he’s heading to Athens after he had been in Thessalonica and Berea. He’s now there in Athens, which was the capital of thought in those days. Athens was one of the largest and most ...read more
