Paul understood that the gospel must be presented in a way that is comprehensible to people in different cultures. As a result, when Paul reasoned with those in Athens, he found points of contact between the biblical view of the world and that of Greek culture. Then he proclaimed that all nations came from the first Adam and that the second Adam, Jesus Christ, will judge all nations. Paul’s message focused on the risen Jesus and included a fervent call to repentance. Like Paul, we need to allow ourselves to be provoked by the idolatry of our culture so that we can boldly and sensitively proclaim the gospel into it.
