Good Friday

In First Things, "Passion Play" by Peter J. Leithart. An excerpt:

It worked so well that Paul followed the same method in Iconium, Lystra, Philippi, Thessalonica, Berea, and Ephesus: Preach Jesus, gain a following, provoke a riot, get stoned or imprisoned or dragged or chased out of the city, escape, repeat. It’s not a plan found in most textbooks of missiology, but it’s the most common one in Acts.
