“JUST AS St Paul
and other New Testament writers had used Greek poetry and
philosophy to illuminate their message for the benefit of
those to whom such ideas were more familiar than Hebrew
thought, and to whom a metaphor drawn from the athletic
games in the stadium was more meaningful than allusions
to the lives of the kings of Israel, so the first Gentile
Christians availed them-selves of the art forms of the pagan
world, and used them in the service of the Gospel as visual
aids to the deeper understanding of the faith and as an
expression of their inmost convictions.”
