This week I am on a short trip in Turkey, visiting many of the typical sites you might expect in Istanbul. I am obviously looking forward to Ephesus, but our short tour is packed. Usually these kind of tours overplay the “seven cities of Revelation” angle, but the group seems more interested in the Pauline studies aspect of these sites. Our guide Mark Wilson has an excellent article in the most recent Tyndale Bulletin on Paul’s second missionary journey, so I am expecting great things over the next few days.

I will try to post a few notes and pictures as I have the chance. I am relying on the WordPress app on my iPad, hopefully that works out okay.

I plan to return to the Second Temple period series next week.
