The main characteristics of Justin’s writing are to bridge the gap between the Christians and on-Christians. To remove the gap between the two cities (Athens and Jerusalem), was the aim of Justin. However, there is no comparison between the academy and church. Philosophy is derived from academy, which Church stands for Christianity. Thus, his aim was to set the relationship between the Greek philosophy and Christian Doctrine, so that he could claim the secular wisdom for the Christians in Rome. At some point, the contents written by Justin teach the same things that were said by the philosophers and the poets. It is very difficult to understand that what axiom is perceived by Justin. It is because, when he states that all the things in the world have been produced and arranged by God, he utters the doctrine of Plato.
Justin tried to form the bridge between the philosophy and the Christianity. However, this bridge was completely rejected by Tertullian. Justin associated Athens with Jerusalem; there can be no bridge in philosophy and in reality. Philosophy of Justin is derived from culture. The philosophical reasoning by Justin has been given to an extent, which states that Gospel is no longer the primary source of truth. Justin says that when the people use their reasoning well, they are accommodating “truth”, and what people affirm as truth should be acknowledged as truth in Gospels, too. Philosophies are derived from the culture and Tertullian rejects all the idea of culture being associated with Christianity. The dialogues presented by Justin are mainly the attempt to bridge the gap between the two cultures, two different worlds and two religions.
