Church Fathers Day 14: St. Justin Martyr: First Apology: 24-35

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. 24-35.

I saw two themes in today's reading. The first dealt with describing other religions of the time. It was an interesting peek into the ideas that competed with early Christianity. The second theme dealt with the history of Christ. It is focused on the Scriptures that prophesied his coming.
