192A The Apostle Paul in Athens and Corinth
On the Apostle Paul’s second missionary journey, he visited and ministered in the cities of Athens and Corinth. The former being the “cradle of democracy and philosophy” and the latter being the commercial center for Achaia. This class will examine the history, archaeology, geography, and material culture of these two cities and the surrounding area in order to understand the ministry of the Apostle Paul as well as the epistles he wrote to the church at Corinth. Lessons will be drawn from these two cities in the 1st century A.D. in order to more effectively reach New York City in the 21st century A.D.
