June 1 — St. Justin, Martyr • 19m
Dr. Ben Akers sits down with Dr. Elizabeth Klein to discuss St. Justin Martyr—an early Church martyr who lived from about AD 100 to 165 and wrote several significant Christian apologetic works. St. Justin was a convert to the Catholic faith, philosopher, and is famous for his idea of the "seeds of the Word" found throughout all of God's creation. St. Justin explains that all things are created by God and that there are seeds of God's truth found in all things. This allows Justin to confidently seek the truth present in other philosophies and even the pagan myths and draw out what is true and good and relate it to the Word—Jesus Christ.
