Paul’s use of Greek Philosophy of his day and age, cannot be overlooked or dismissed. He used the words of intellectuals of his day to his advantage in taking God’s word and the good news to the Greek speaking Gentile world. The evidence provided above cannot be passed off as mere coincidence. He wrote and spoke these words to a particular people who would have understood and would have been very familiar with the metaphors and ideas which he was using. One of the main reasons that we have such a hard time understanding Paul’s words is that we are so much removed from the world Paul was living in, and talking to.

This is the same reason that some of us today use familiarity with comics, movies and TV shows in order to share the gospel.

Did Neil Gaiman borrow this for the episode that he wrote for Doctor Who – “The Doctor’s Wife”? Douglas Adams was a script editor for Classic Who.
