Greetings! Mary and I invite you to join us on an 18 day adult "study tour" to Turkey and Greece—following in the Footsteps of Paul. We have a handcrafted itinerary and excellent guides. In addition, I will be giving mini-lectures along the way both on the bus and on the sites, drawing from my studies and from the 20+ trips that we have led to Turkey and Greece. We will relate what we are seeing to the New Testament and the Early Christian Church. Thus, it is not a mere tour, but a hands on experience as we study the New Testament and its Greco Roman background together!
Noteworthy! We will visit all 7 churches mentioned in Revelation 1-3 and places where 15 of the 27 New Testament books were written to and/or from! This year we are including a day trip to the Island of Patmos where John received his "revelation" (Revelation 1:9) and a visit to one of the "hanging monasteries" of Meteora.
We hope you will join us! Contact us soon if you are interested (firstname.lastname@example.org).

et–Tell is located 1 mi. north of the Sea of Galilee. It is a large 22 acre mound.
The site was probably the capital of the kingdom of Geshur—the place that one of David’s wives (the mother of Absalom) was from (2 Sam 3:3; 13–20-38). The most important archaeological finds are from this period.
Its identification with New Testament Bethsaida is possible, but not certain. Bethsaida was the home of Philip, Andrew, and Peter—disciples of Jesus, and there Jesus performed a number of miracles including the healing of a blind man and the feeding of the 5,000.
