Reflection Questions
  • Explain briefly the mechanism by which we know what we know about the events of the Hellenistic period.

  • In modern missionary methodology, redemptive analogies are researched and used to introduce the Gospel. If you were the Apostle Paul, what redemptive analogies might you have used with those involved in the mystery religions?

  • What is meant by the fact that the books of the Apocrypha are “hidden”? What is the relationship of the Apocrypha to the Old Testament?
