No Judgments, Just Jesus

Easter 6 – The Unknown God: Preaching to the “Nones” (Acts 17:16-33)

In this story from Acts, Paul witnesses of his faith in the intellectual center of Athens. Paul accommodates his message to this unique setting by commending his listener’s spiritual curiosity, finding common ground, and speaking of God’s revelation in Christ. Though the idolatry of the city outrages him, Paul speaks with great grace and respect toward his listeners, providing a model for us all.
