Paul and the Philosophers: A Case Study in Philosophy and Christian Thought

This is the final week of a 5-week Sunday School series on "Philosophy and Christian Thought." We began this session by reviewing the nature of philosophy and its relationship to Christian thought, including the ways that philosophy can be dangerous for the Christian and how it can be beneficial. We then examined the account of the Apostle Paul's interaction with the Stoic and Epicurean philosophers at Mars Hill, recorded in Acts 17. After considering the historical and philosophical background of this passage, we derived some general principles about how Christians should engage with the philosophies and philosophers of our own day based on the example set by Paul in this "case study." We concluded by briefly discussing some resources for further study on the themes of this series.
