Stained Glass - Teaching

Church Fathers Day 13: St. Justin Martyr: First Apology: 12-23

I'm using a plan that has me reading through 10 of the Church Fathers during Lent this year. Today was St. Justin Martyr: First Apology: Chaps. 12-23.

I like how he used a large part of this portion to review Christ's teaching. Much of it was a direct quote from the gospels. I also like how he compares Christian theology with Roman theology -- i.e., the virgin birth of Christ is similar to the sons of Jupiter.
