The 2011 Study Cruise to the cradle of Christianity is underway as we explore Italy, Israel, Ephesus and Greece. The cradle in which the infant church was nurtured was the Mediterranean world of antiquity. At the beginning of our trip, we spent some time in Rome learning of the historical culture, history, and biblical events that occurred there. Dr. R.C. Sproul took some time to reflect at various locations, including the Colosseum, the Arch of Constantine, and the Mamertine Prison where the apostles Peter and Paul were once prisoners.
We will begin our tour of Israel today, experiencing the sacred space where our redemption was accomplished. You can follow the trip by looking for blog updates and viewing photos here.
