Acts 17 Pt 2 The Unknown GOD

Paul had fled from Thessalonica and Berea after many believed his message because some of the Jews wanted him dead. Paul went to the cultural center of the world, Athens.

The people of Athens  attempted to worship every known god in all the world. Paul had not seen so many idols concentrated in one city. They were so superstitious the Athenians had a god for everything except one.

Many years before, Paul's visit, there was a great plague in Athens and many people died. There were many organized prayers, in an attempt to identify which of the gods the people had angered. The plague continued. They came up with a plan to send a flock of sheep down each row of idols and believed where ever the sheep stopped and rested, the idol figure located where the sheep stopped was the god that had been offended.

They people would pray and sacrifice the flock of sheep to that god and beg the god to take away the curse. The sheep walked passed every idol in Athens and finally walked passed the last idol and headed to a meadow and laid down. The people believed they had missed a god. There was one god who the people did not know and had never worshipped. 

The people prepared a pedestal, for the god. They did not know the god's name or what it looked like. The people simply put a plaque, on the pedestal that read "The Unknown God". The plague finally stopped. Paul picked up on their superstition and proclaimed he represented the Unknown God and Paul knew His name.
