The Bible and Sport – The Olympics vs the Crown of Righteousness
A Christadelphian Video: Description: A very topical presentation against the backdrop of the Tokyo Olympic games. The years of dedication, discipline and sacrifice made by athletes striving to achieve that ultimate win, that first place gold medal. The history of the games is outlined, from ancient Greece to the games revival modern times. The Apostle Paul spent time in Corinth where the Isthmian games, (an athletic and musical competition) were held in second and fourth year of each Olympiad. Healludes to that same mind set of the athlete – the discipline and sacrifice required by the disciple of Christ to press on towards that prize of eternal life, the ultimate reward of a life lived faithfully in the hope of Jesus Christ.
