Persuading the King

Persuading the King

In this passage, Paul stands before Agrippa and Festus, a secular person and a religious person, respectively. Is persuading others about faith merely a matter of having credible, intellectual firepower? What role does someone’s emotional life and experience play in all this? In what sense is there “no argument” about Jesus? This sermon shows us gospel persuasion is done rationally, personally, and Biblically.

The Gospel to the Philosophers

The Gospel to the Philosophers

The Sermon on Mars Hill is the message by the Apostle Paul to the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers in Athens. How does Paul even attempt to address such an educated, sophisticated group? Would the gospel be any different than what we would share to more “common,” uneducated folk? How does Paul show these philosophers the real truth of God by working out of the premises of their own philosophy? The text tells us the public nature of gospel, the internal coherence of gospel, and the historical power of gospel.
