Greek Gods, myths and religion - Part 2 - 100 photos

The Statute of Athena - Notice the size of the man beside it.
When Paul arrived in the Hellenistic world, he faced a multitude of gods and temples. Greek mythology as it was taught across the Roman world, had a god, or goddess, or myth to explain everything, include human abilities and natural events, such as storms and thunder.

How did the message of Christ Jesus penetrate this ancient world view?

How die the apostles and early Christians overcome the tremendous bias against the statement "There is only One God"?

The photo of Athena is from the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, Canada.
