Follow the Lamb: in the Footsteps of John & Paul
A travel course hosted by Regent College, open to all.
Led by Professor Paul Spilsbury with Pastor Bronwyn Spilsbury
As we explore the New Testament world of the Book of Acts, the letters of Paul, and the book of Revelation, we will listen anew for the Voice calling us to “Follow the Lamb wherever he goes.” We will trace the travels of John and Paul to the ancient cities and islands of Greece and Asia Minor (Turkey), and as we take in the rugged beauty of this majestic land we will dive into the depths of what the Spirit was doing then and is doing now. For as they followed his Voice then, so we continue to do now.
The Seven Churches of Revelation and the World of Acts
The journey starts in magnificent Istanbul, with Haggia Sophia, the blue mosque, grand bazaar and a river cruise. We journey to ethereal Cappadocia where we see frescoes in ancient cave churches (also an optional hot air balloon ride!) We will visit the locations of the churches of Revelation, with excellent teaching throughout.
For example, Ephesus is where locals chanted praise to goddess Diana and tried to kill Paul. We walk its ancient streets, and from there we will set sail on a 4 day cruise through the Greek islands. Includes Biblical islands like Patmos and Rhodes, plus beautiful Santorini and more. We disembark and enter Greece. We tour Athens and Corinth, stopping at Mars Hill and seeing the Bema Seat. We open Scripture, pray, and understand more deeply.
At every location we will hear scholarly and devotional teaching. We will experience history, Scripture, and beauty. Come to be enriched, informed, transformed!
A Josephus scholar and New Testament Professor, Dr. Paul Spilsbury’s expertise is Christian origins and the earliest Church writings – exactly what this journey is all about. Paul is Academic Dean and Professor of New Testament at Regent College.
Pastor Bronwyn Spilsbury insightfully ties together the themes of Scripture, and leads the group in fellowship and fun. An experienced journey director, she takes care of the details, so you can relax, experience and enjoy.
For maximum benefit, we encourage travellers to take the journey as a course for Regent College credit, as an option.
