Hall of Tyrannus

Does the strategy still work?

Why this is important

The Apostle Paul (Saint Paul) was the greatest missionary of all time, and this study is about what we can learn from his biggest evangelistic success.

This is the only time we see how Paul put into action everything he had learned from more than 30 years of experience in presenting the gospel to unbelievers and doubters in different cultures.

This is the story of Paul and the Hall of Tyrannus he rented in Ephesus. It is a powerful model for evangelism today, revealed in the pages of scripture.

Parts to the strategy

Paul put all together in Hall of Tyrannus, but comprised of parts. Any part is useful even by itself.

Socratic method

Assume because used in halls of learning. Philosophy (live fulfilled life) and science.

More about Socratic.

Still more.

No lecture and no need for rote memorization.

Inquiry progress interactively and teacher is as much a participant as a guide in the discussion. Inquiry is open-ended.

Without a lesson plan, the group follows the dialogue where it goes.

Socratic inquiry aims to reveal the motivations and assumptions upon which student lead their lives.

Doesn't rest on citing authorities.

How one ought to live. Coherence.

Get students to account for themselves, not just regurgitate readings or lessons.

Space that encourages interaction. Seats bolted the floor not good.

Learn about critical thinking.

No Bible study, no Bible. One God. Experiential. Paul's testimony. Stories of changed lives. What does it mean? A living God.

Apprentice and guilds. But leisure learning self-betterment .

Learned from Athens

Mars hill.

Whole new method
