Christian Tours In Greece

Follow The Steps Of Apostle Paul

Greece: A Biblical Destination

For most people “the biblical world” is undoubtfully connected with the land of Israel. Indeed all the major events of the Bible took place in the area of Modern Israel, though the biblical world includes also the areas of Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Italy, Greece, Cyprus and Turkey. Nearly two-thirds of the New Testament, including all the letters of Paul, most of Acts and the book of Revelation, are set in either Turkey or Greece.

Following the death of Jesus, his disciples were commissioned to spread his teachings to all nations. Apostle Pall is one of the most important figures of the Apostolic Age, who taught the gospel of the Christ to the first century world. Known also as Saul of Tarsus (in modern Turkey), a scholarly Jew and Roman citizen he had converted to the new Christian faith. After conversion, he started apostolic journey to Asia Minor. He had a vision at Troas calling him to come over to Greece.

He sailed from Troas to Samothrace and then to Neapolis (Kavala) and then traveled to Philippi. He is the one who converted to Christianity the first woman in Europe’s history and he is the one who established the first church on the European soil. Through Amphipolis and Apollonia, he visited Thessaloniki, Berea, Athens & Corinth. From Corinth Apostle Paul sailed to Ephesus.

He came back for the second time in Greece sailing from Assos to Mytilene, then Chios and Samos. Then to Ephesus again and then through Cos & Rhodes back to Middle East. On his way to Rome to be judged as Roman citizen, sailing from Caesarea through Myra to Rome Apostle Paul experienced bad weather. The ship he was sent with to Rome forced by strong winds stopped at Fair Havens (Crete).

During his journeys Apostle of the Nations wrote and sent letters to churches he had established, letters reflecting his theology. He is considered the first theologian of the new religion which combines new concepts, new teachings and new messages influenced by the ancient Greek civilization. The New Testament especially the book of Acts and the letters of Paul are revealing the obvious biblical significance and the interaction between the ancient Greek culture and Christianity.

Greece is the first European country converted to Christianity. The first churches of Europe were set up in Greece. The first woman of Europe converted into Christianity was living on the Greek territory. The places that Apostle Paul visited are still existing as well as his message. The message Apostle of the Nations took to the Greeks almost 2,000 years ago. The places where he taught can be visited actually and today.

For these reasons, Greece can be called an apostolic country. For these reasons Greece is a main biblical destination.
