IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF APOSTLE PAUL

IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF APOSTLE PAUL

Greece, thanks to Apostle Paul, became the gate for Christianity’s spread to the rest of Europe. During his missionary journey to tens of cities, villages, islands, supporting the globalization of Jesus’ teaching, he promoted Christianity as much as no one else did; thus he is called “Apostle of the Nations”.

During his second journey, which commenced in 49 AD, a vision he had in Troas urged him to pass from Macedonia. A Macedonian man was begging him to visit his area and help his people. Apostle Paul comprehended this vision as a divine intervention and, together with Silas, visited Macedonia teaching in Philippi, Thessaloniki, Veroia, Athens, Corinth, with brief intervals at Samothrace, Kavala (Neapolis), Amphipolis, Apollonia, in between.

The “Footsteps of Apostle Paul” pass through all the places the restless Evangelic preacher taught, and form an ideal combination of both a pilgrimage and touring, in some of the most beautiful spots in Greece.
