Reflection Questions
  • Use your reading to evaluate this statement from a history book that was used in earlier versions of WCF: “… neither the Roman Empire nor the diffusion of Christianity would have been conceivable … without Philip and Alexander’s achievements.”

  • Compare and contrast the role of the single world system of Macedonia in the development of Alexander’s influence and the role of Galilee in the development of Jesus’ influence?
