For most people 'the biblical world' suggests images of the land of Israel. Much of biblical history indeed took place within the boundaries of the modern nation of Israel, but the biblical world is not confined to that area alone. In biblical writings, and particularly in the New Testament, the areas encompassed by modern countries of Greece and Turkey appear prominently. Nearly two-thirds of the New Testament, including all the letters of Paul, most of Acts, and the book of Revelation, are set in either Turkey or Greece. This book is intended to serve as a historical, biblical, and archaeological guide to most of these biblical sites.
