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).

The Herodium is located 7.5 miles south of Jerusalem. It is about 3.5 miles southeast of Bethlehem.
According to Josephus, a Jewish historian, it served as a palace/fortress for Herod the Great. Herod was buried here in 4 B.C. Later the Herodium served as a base for Jewish rebels during the first (A.D. 66-70) and second (A.D. 132-135) revolts against the Romans.
