“After this, Paul left Athens and went to Corinth” (Ac 18:1)
My husband, our daughter Alina and I, we travelled today from Athens to Corinth. This is the exact same way Apostle Paul took to go to Corinth. In Corinth, we saw the ruins of the Corinth Castle built in the 4th century. From up the mountain you can see the city of Corinth in the valley. Surely Apostle Paul saw it when he stayed in Corinth. We then went to see the ruins of the ancient city of Corinth. In the museum we saw many statues and sculptures that they have dogged out from the area. They are well preserved showing the life as it was then. The best preserved ruin is the Temple of Apollos. It stands tall but lonely, a sign of lost interest of the worship of idols in the Ancient Greece. We then went to see the old Church of Saint Paul built in his honor in the city of Corinth. We also went to see the ancient Corinth Canal, manually carved in stone so the the ships can pass from one place to the other. Apostle Paul may have seen it and passes thru it. Today was a wonderful day of Biblical history and revival, especially as we did this as a family. To God be all the glory!
