The Apologetic Inherent in the Gospel Message

Date recorded: 24 May 2016 | Speaker: Jerry Root | Event: ELF Advanced Apologetics Network


Apologetics comes from a Greek word that simply means “defense”. We see it used in classical literature in Plato’s Apology/Defense in Athens. We see it used in the early Church by Justin Martyr in his Apology I and II as he makes a defense for Christianity before the emperor of Rome. Though it is good to be familiar with the basic types of apologetic appeals, it is best of all not to neglect the most profound apologetic inherent in the Gospel itself.
