A Gigantic Task
| Taking the gospel to
the Jewish people who had been God's chosen people for centuries and under
the Mosaic Law was a most difficult undertaking because they were so
attached to that Law that they refused to let go in favor of the Christ.
But even more difficult was taking the gospel to the heathen world,
particularly the Greeks, because of their historical background in their
philosophies and mythologies.
After recently reading a book about the Grecian gods it seems to me it would be nearly impossible to implant in their minds the true and living God of heaven. All the weird "deities" that they held in their heritage made them as steeped in idolatry and paganism as one could imagine.
Yet the gospel was preached to both Jew and Greek, salvation offered on the same terms, and the way of the Christ still reigns supreme.
