Tour of a Lifetime

Tour of a Lifetime March 10, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-03-09 at 10.53.39 AMI cannot imagine anything more rewarding for understanding the first three decades of the church than taking a tour of places where Paul and John established and wrote to churches. So I’m hoping you will consider joining us … I am preparing special talks (not long lectures) on each of Paul’s letters and as often as possible in the location to which Paul wrote the letters.

Northern Seminary is sponsoring a tour to Turkey and Greece to visit the sits of the apostles Paul and John. And I will be the lead teacher. Our tour will be nearly two weeks long and we will visit major cities and sites.

The tour also will include a marvelous stop at none other than gorgeous Santorini, that lovely Greek island, and we will have daily Bible studies focused on the life and mission of the apostle Paul and some also on the apostle John and devotionals.

I have never been to Greece or Turkey, so this is a highlight tour for me and I’m already plotting the teaching sessions. We will also have daily special teaching sessions from a Chicagoland pastor (Eric Camfield, from Christ Church Oakbrook).

We are giving those interested plenty of lead time, keeping the tour to one dimension of Bible times (the apostles in their missionary work), and praying we will find groups from churches to explore the Bible in its original setting.

Exploring the First Century Church

Follow the footsteps of Paul and John through Turkey and Greece.

June 19 – July 1, 2016

During this 13 day contextual tour we will visit over 15 historical sites including Istanbul, Nicaea, Hierapolis, Laodicea, Colossae, Ephesus, Patmos, Crete, Athens, Corinth, Cenchreae, Thessalonica, Philippi, Kavala, and more!

Imagine standing where Paul stood while preaching to the Phillipians or walking the same road that John walked into Ephesus. On this life changing tour participants will experience the first century church in a whole new way. The tour will be led by Scot McKnight in partnership with local tour guides and experts.

The entire program cost including airfare, travel, lodging, and food is $5,109. To help meet this cost, we encourage participants to raise support through their church, their family, and their friends. In addition to these great supporters, participants may also find fundraising resources like http://www.gofundme.com/ to be very beneficial.
