Paul Preached In Athens Teaching Picture – 11X17
On Paul’s second missionary journey, he traveled to an important city in Greece called Athens and waited there for Silas and Timothy to join him from Berea (see Acts 17:16-34). While Paul was waiting, he talked to people around the city about Jesus. Paul’s preaching stirred a lot of interest and he was soon invited to speak to some of the leaders at a place called the Areopagus. Intellectual leaders (philosophers, teachers, etc.) would gather there to talk about religion and new ideas. Paul spoke to the men and declared that the God who created all things (the God of the Bible) is the only God there really is and He doesn’t live in physical buildings. Now this God calls all people to believe in Jesus, God’s Son. Paul explained that God had raised Jesus from the dead. Some of the people in Athens rejected Paul’s message, but some believed and became followers of Jesus. This legal size (11X17) Paul Preached in Athens Teaching Picture will help kids learn about this story and understand that the God of the Bible is the only God there is and that He is worthy of our worship, love, and trust.
