Allen: the Gospel according to St. Paul (III)

Wednesday, October 9, 2019
    Commemoration of Denys, Bishop of Paris, & his Companions, Martyrs, 258
    Commemoration of Robert Grosseteste, Bishop of Lincoln, Philosopher, Scientist, 1253
    I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.
    —Acts 20:21 (NIV)
    [Continued from yesterday]
    This Gospel accords perfectly with the account which St. Paul gives of his preaching in his last address to the Ephesian elders, and it contains all the elements which are to be found in all the sermons and in all the notices of St. Paul’s preaching in the Acts, except only the answers to the objections against the Gospel, and the proofs of its truth which would be manifestly out of place in writing to Christians.
    ... Roland Allen (1869-1947), Missionary Methods: St. Paul’s or ours?, London: World Dominion Press, 1927, reprinted, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1962, p. 69 (see the book)
    See also Acts 20:21
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, repeat You call to us until we hear it.
