The Vibe of Greece

There is a vibrant buzz about Greece when it appears in the New Testament. Jesus never makes it this far but Paul travels to Corinth, Thessalonica and Philippi and sets up churches there. Despite their golden age being over and the Romans now being in charge, Greece is modern, urban and forward thinking. As a result, the Greeks still maintain a thinking, philosophical vibe and enjoy a good argument. Some of them can't help taking the story of Jesus and modifying, embellishing or otherwise trying to improve it which gets Paul's back up. A kind of brainy kid in school who gets bored easily and keeps asking ‘why?’ vibe.
