Abraham’s Country: The Ancient Civilizations of Turkey

September 15-27, 2013

View trip details.

Turkey is more than the land of the Seven Churches of Revelation or the site of St. Paul’s missionary journey; It is the place where civilization began and is even linked with the Garden of Eden mention in Genesis 2-3. The great civilizations that existed here thousands of years ago serve as the backdrop for some of the most important stories from the Old Testament. Here, the Assyrians traded at Kanesh, the Babylonians fought the Egyptians at Carchemish, and Alexander the Great cut the Gordion knot at Gordion, home of King Midas. Join us as we take an extraordinary journey through the earliest Biblical periods and explore the remains of the great civilizations that helped shaped the Biblical world.
