“. . . for as I was passing through and considering the objects

 of your worship, I even found an altar with this inscription:

TO THE UNKNOWN GOD.”

            (Acts 17:23)

 

Paul’s message was simple: The unknown God has a name, and His hidden-ness has been revealed. The invisible reality of God had already been observed in His creation. Furthermore, God is omnipresent. Unlike the Greek god Apollo, who can be confined to an altar, God cannot be housed. God is too high to go above, too low to go beneath, and too wide to go around. He is also the God of one blood. That is, His creation is from the same bloodline. Because of that, all people need the same thing—God Himself.
