At least one thing they share is a lack of reason on all sides. It’s striking that in Athens, the Apostle Paul was reasoning
with Jews in the synagogue and Greeks in the marketplace about the resurrection of Christ (Acts 17:17
). His arguments attracted the attention of the philosophers, who invited him to address their debating society. Quoting Greek poets and philosophers, his speech, reported in Acts 17, reached its climax with the announcement of Christ’s resurrection. Many scoffed, while others said “we will hear more on this later,” and a few became believers.
