What is an honourable way to interact with the Gospel account?
In Acts 17 1-5 Luke is highlighting for us is that an honourable/noble way to interact with the Good News about Jesus is to engage it with a measured eagerness.
A genuine desire to understand the truth of the Gospel for yourself.
As we do so, it is good to know that we all hold to presuppositions and will all check the Gospel against the authoritative sources of truth we know – in most cases only experientially.
As Christians we shouldn’t be threatened as people seek to do this, we should remember that the Gospel has held up to thousands of years of critique and still remains a reasonable faith.
