Chapter Summary

In the ancient world, and certainly in the Roman imperial period, traditional custom played an important röle and ordinarily regulated the conduct of society and of the individual. One of the questions posed in the work on the so-called Corpus Hellenisticum for the N. T. The aim of which is to collate and arrange the material from the Greek and Roman world that can be useful for interpreting and understanding the N. T. In the course of historical investigation of Christianity in its most ancient developments, much has been said about hellenization and the concept frequently carries the flavor of "degeneration" and "apostasy". Christians knew of a commission to make disciples of Jesus from all nations, to bring the gospel "to the uttermost parts of the earth" for God loved the world and therefore Paul considered himself a debtor to both Jews and Greeks.
