What Will This Babbler Say?

What will this babbler say? He seems to be a proclaimer of foreign gods” – Acts 17:18

When Paul approached the self-aggrandizing, navel-gazing philosophers of Athens, he was met with instant ridicule.

What was so foolish to these Greeks? Basically, the gospel of Jesus, but specifically – the resurrection. It seemed laughable to them. (But some believed!)

Nothing much has changed.

Proclaiming the death and resurrection of a nobody carpenter from a nowhere town who died a criminal’s death in a borrowed tomb… seems laughable today and is met with instant ridicule.

(But some will believe!)
