Description: Concepts such as the body-soul relationship and Logos are common “everyday” concepts to Christians of the 21st Century, but where did these concepts originate? The ancient Greeks, led many times by the philosophers, accepted not only the mystery of the Divine but intuitively knew our human relationship with the Divine through acts of worship and devotion. Thus, when Saint Paul began his sermon by saying, “Men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you are very religious; for as I was passing through and considering the objects of your worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Therefore, the One whom you worship without knowing, Him I proclaim to you.” (Acts 17.22-23) The Greeks welcomed the message of Christianity and the Greek World became the venue of spreading the Gospel to the known world.
