St. Paul's Church (2)

St. Paul

View looking northwest at the eastern (apse) end of the Church. The church is basilica shaped with a nave, and two side aisles. To the north (visible) are the remains of an adjacent structure.

Additional portions of the church have been excavated since this photo was taken. To the left of the protruding apse, some believe the remnants of an earlier synagogue have been found.

One of the six major speeches (sermons) of Paul was given on the Sabbath day in the synagogue of Pisidian Antioch (Acts 13:13–43). The church was built early in the fourth century A.D.
