When the apostle Paul planted the church in Corinth, the earliest converts brought many of their pagan perspectives with them into their Christian life. This resulted in a number of problems in the church for Paul to address in terms of believers’ relationships with each other, with Paul and with God.
Come with us to Greece to experience first-hand the material remains left behind by this ancient culture. We’ll stay in Athens and see the Greco-Roman temples that were so important in everyday life. We’ll stand in the ancient agora where Paul debated with the philosophers of his day, and visit Mars Hill where he was taken to explain this new and strange teaching.
We’ll explore the ancient city of Corinth and see why its geographical location contributed so much to the ethos of the city. An optional extension will offer the opportunity to visit other cities in the footsteps of Paul – Berea, Thessalonica and Philippi. We’ll also visit the tomb of King Philip (father of Alexander the Great) and see the exquisite articles buried with him. On the way we’ll stop at Meteora, where centuries-old monasteries cling to the side of craggy precipices. This is a trip to Greece with a unique focus. Experience first-class teaching from Dr Greg Forbes supplemented by the local knowledge of fully qualified Greek tour guides.
