    Welcome to Greece, the capital of democracy, ancient civilization and art.  As well, it was in Greece that some of the most important words in the New Testament were directed. This city, named after Alexander the Great’s sister, was the center of Paul’s activities in Northern Greece.  He preached here and found a church, to whom he wrote two epistles (Acts 17:1-9 – 1 and 2 Thessalonians).  Following an orientation tour of the city, you will enjoy dinner at your hotel with your traveling companions.

This journey takes you to ancient Philippi, named after the father of Alexander the Great.  This busy Roman colony boasted of a great library and theater. In Philippi, Paul preached, established the first church in Europe, and as a prisoner in Rome, he wrote one of his epistles (Acts 16:11-15).  Next you continue to Kavala, ancient port of Neapolis Acts 16:9-11).  You will return to your hotel in Thessaloniki for dinner and overnight.

    Early this morning, we explore Ephesus, dominated by the great 24,000-seat amphitheater, cited in Acts as the place of the apostles’ courageous witness. What a privilege to walk these ancient streets in the footsteps of New Testament writers Paul and John! Excavations at Ephesus are ongoing…each season more can be seen of the city where Paul invested two years of his ministry. Archaeologists still digging at the site have reconstructed much of it, including the beautiful two-story Library of Celsus, The Temple of Hadrian, and the Temple of Artemis (one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the temple once had 129 columns and was the size of a football field). Our second stop today is at Patmos where the exiled St John received the Revelation which forms the last book of the New Testament. Included is an excursion to the Monastery which is of the 11th Century and to the Grotto of Revelation.
