300 - (ARCHIVE) - Sailing the Wine Dark Sea with Paul
This 13 session course provides a study of Paul’s travel through the Aegean, to Greece and western Asia Minor, specifically Ephesus. Join us as we journey with Paul through Greece. We will discuss the cities he visited, their physical setting and history, as well as Paul’s encounters within these locations. We will also look at the letters he writes to some of these communities. By understanding Paul, and his message, within his world and the challenges he faced, we can understand the growth and development of the early Church.
