One of the joys of ministry is to lead people to life-changing trips that open up the world of the Bible. While the focus of our ministry (Biblical Israel Ministries & Tours) is to offer rock-solid biblical trips to Israel, we also offer extensive trips to Greece. Our aim is to bring alive the world of theÂ New Testament! Â With writing our own programs, the land portion of each and every Greece trip starts in the north and travels to the south before ending up in Athens.
The Land Tour
The land program takes us to see the following biblical site: Thessalonica, Neopolis, Philippi, Berea (not much there though), Corinth, and Athens. We also encounter wonderful classical sites as well, such as Vergina, Delphi, and Olympia (in the Peloponnese) . We also include the Greek monasteries of Meteora and the Old Testament site of Mycanae (near Corinth). We see a lot of beautiful Greek countryside!
“A trip to Greece and Turkey opens up the entire New Testament world of the Apostle Paul. It is like walking back into time and learning new things about the mission efforts of this incredibly faithful missionary.”
The Cruise Tour
Each tour always includes either a 3 or 4 day Greek island cruise that features even more biblical connections (e.g. Patmos, Ephesus in Turkey), Crete and/or Rhodes, and we usually sail past Samos). The cruise also takes us to other Greek islands that are famous for their beauty (e.g. Myconos and the spectacular Santorini).
Our next Greece Tours!
Our next Greece trip actually begins next Monday, September 10th. We have a good group joining us, 28 in number. This trip will be a 13 day trip. However, we are now taking reservations for our October 2019 11 Day Greece trip, with an optional extension to Pompeii and Rome.
The program includes all the Greek inland sites except Olympia with a 3 day cruise (vs. a 4 day one). Still spectacular in every way! If you want to check out further details about this October, 2019 trip, go HERE. While the cruise is one day shorter, it still includes Myconos, Patmos, Ephesus, Crete, and Santorini (can’t miss this last amazing site!!).
The optional extension takes us on a flight to Rome. We then drive to Pompeii and see the extensive ruins here. Then we spend two days in Rome.
Join us in 2019!
So we invite you to explore Ancient Greece and the world of the New Testament. The ministry and mission efforts of Paul and others will come alive! Not only will you retrace Paul’s footsteps, but you will also learn life-lessons that will inspire your walk of faith with Christ!
