Reactions to the Resurrection

Acts 17:32  (ID: 2380)

When the apostle Paul entered Athens, he encountered rival philosophies of life and met them with the straightforward truth of the resurrection. The Epicureans sought pleasure, and the Stoics sought to accept a predetermined fate, but Christianity offered an altogether distinct perspective on life and death. Examining the three responses that the Athenians had to the resurrection—dismissal, interest, and belief—Alistair Begg reminds us that we also have a choice to make.

32Now when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked. But others said, “We will hear you again about this.”
