The Journeys of Paul - 2009 and 2012
Come follow us in the footsteps of Paul. The very top webpage pictures are of biblical locations still in existence where Paul walked and depending on the guide - the possible steps of a synagogue in Ephesus, Turkey; the Via Egnatia, in Philippi, Greece; the Areopagus (Mars Hill) Athens, Greece; the streets of Corinth, Greece; and the Mamertine Prison, Rome, Italy.
The 2009 tour was about discovering the Seven Churches in Revelation and how they were part of Paul's mission tour. While the churches in Revelation referred to the people/christians as the church ... there were and still are standing church buildings in some of the existing cities and archaeological sites of today.
The 2012 tour for me was "the rest of the story" and started in Paul's home town of Tarsus. Actually we landed in Antioch next to the border of Syria, where Saul and Barnabas were called upon by the Holy Spirt and sent to Cyprus and thus began the first mission trip. (Acts 13:2)
Other pictures of both trips will
be featured throughout the pages of this site.
The Via Egnatia was especially nice to be walking on
and it was just as nice the second time as it was
the first. If you stepped on enough of
the original stones ... well, you truly could step
on a stone that Paul and other disciples had walked
on. We were 1900 plus years too late to
meet with them, but this was the next best thing.
By reading Paul's words and then being there,
brought a whole new appreciation for his travels and
to his words . Awesome!
