The city of Philadelphia was positioned at the crossroads of trade and commerce which brought it great wealth. This wealth made the city a poster child for the benefits of Greek culture for which it had a missionary zeal. Christ’s mission for His church in this city was to counteract the missionary zeal for Hellenism with a missionary zeal for the gospel. This message explores Christ’s call to the Church to be a counter-cultural force through gospel witness.
