Following Paul in Turkey and Greece study tour 2013 | briercrest college and seminary
About the Study Tour
Join us on an exciting 17-day academic tour of Turkey and Greece, focusing on Greco-Roman sites related to the journeys of Paul and the Seven Churches of Revelation. With stops in Troy, Athens, Corinth and Delphi, the trip will also be of interest to students of Classical Greece. We hope you'll come and enrich your reading of the New Testament as you walk in the footsteps of the apostles along with other Briercrest professors, students, and alumni.
The trip will be hosted by Briercrest professors Dr. Kevin Daugherty and Dr. David Miller, and will feature six days of teaching by Dr. Mark Wilson, director of the Seven Churches Network in Izmir, Turkey, and author of Biblical Turkey: A Guide to Jewish and Christian Sites of Asia Minor (Istanbul: Ege Yayinlari, 2010). Accommodation, travel, and guiding in Turkey and Greece will be organized by Tutku Tours. International airfare and travel insurance will be organized by Menno Travel.
Students may take the tour as part of a credit course in the college or the seminary.
For more information, contact David Miller.
