|In the footsteps of St.Paul|
This tour gives us the opportunity to visit and explore the places where St. Paul preached to the ancient Greeks in Athens and Corinth, in a day.
The tour starts by visiting the “Areos Pagos” at the foot of the Acropolis.
Continuing our tour to our next stop, the “Agora”, we’ll have the opportunity of a sightseeing in the centre of Athens. (Temple of Zeus-1896 Olympic stadium-Presidential Palace-Greek Parliament-Changing of the Guards).
The “Agora” (which means market) in ancient Athens functioned as more than a place where goods were bought and sold. It served as a testing ground for new ideas a place where people could come and meet.
With our visit to the “Agora” we conclude the Athens part of our tour and we continue to visit Corinth. About an hour away via the coastal highway we reach the Corinth Canal (approx. 6 km long connecting the Aegean with the Ionian Sea)where we have a brief stop for photos. Then we drive to Ancient Corinth where we visit the museum and the archaeological site where the “Bema” is.
The “Bema” was where the judge of the town presided or the orator of the town would speak or make a public announcement. The “Bema” in Corinth is located in the heart of the city as public speaking was very important. The Bible, in the Book of Acts, records that Paul was brought to the Bema under accusations of contrary teaching. The Roman governor Gallio dismissed the case as a Jewish quarrel.
We conclude our tour in Corinth with lunch in a traditional Greek taverna and we start our return trip to Athens via Kechries, the port of Corinth from where St. Paul sailed to Ephessus.
