What does Athens have to do with Jerusalem? Open Post

This is an open post space for those of you who wish to address Tertullian's age-old question. Please use the comment space to post.

Thanks for these, especially Bob MacDonald's blog. (By the way, the link to IHSOUS Blog in your post is broken it seems).

My response is like Nick Norelli's in the previous comment, only more complex (and less humorous):

Paul does go to Athens but finds that Aristotle has already (indirectly) commissioned a few from Jerusalem. Icky results.

A late contribution (well late on Wednesday in the UK)

A different take.

Thank you Bill Cork for your most refreshing essay.

I appreciate the comments made on this blog but add two questions to provoke further discussion:

1. At Jerusalem [ representing whole of life, synthesized, integrated ( or more correctly 'coinherance'), ... learning], does Athens [ representing cognitive, analytical, ... learning] need to be explicitly evident? Otherwise we are living in a very dualistic world - Acts Chapter 1.

2. Are 'relationships that nurture transformation' keys to this integration / coinherance (Romans 12:1 - 2)?
