Discussion Board: After reading this week’s reading in Strachan and Piper, watching the video lecture and the multimedia sources you reviewed this week, read Acts 17:16-32:

Bible Gateway passage: Acts 17:16-32 – Holman Christian Standard BiblePaul in Athens – While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, his spirit was troubled within him when he saw that the city was full of idols. So he reasoned in the synagogue with the Jews and with those who worshiped God and in the marketplace every day with those who happened to be there. Then also, some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers argued with him. Some said, “What is this pseudo-intellectual trying to say?” Others replied, “He seems to be a preacher of foreign deities”—because he was telling the good news about Jesus and the Resurrection. They took him and brought him to the Areopagus, and said, “May we learn about this new teaching you’re speaking of? For what you say sounds strange to us, and we want to know what these ideas mean.”Bible Gateway

“Cultural intelligence calls us to see ourselves as ambassadors representing God, not so much as citizens of a particular earthly nation or political view, but as citizens of His kingdom” (Bock, Darrell L.. Cultural Intelligence (p. 30). B&H Publishing Group. Kindle Edition). How is Paul able to engage with the philosopher’s in Athens? How does this interaction reflect Paul’s identity as a Jew, a follower of Christ and a Roman citizen? Does Paul in Athens reflect what Bock describes as cultural intelligence? How does Paul’s actions reflect his understanding of the image of God? . Students’ original response should be a minimum of 250 words.
