Visiting Pergamum – The Compromising Church | 7 Churches of Revelation Tour

The church in Pergamum (modern-day Bergama) was the third to receive a letter in the Book of Revelation. While they were commended for staying true to Jesus, they were rebuked for some of them followed false teachings.

Pergamum/Pergamon was a wealthy city that was known for its healing center–the Asclepion, its library–which boasted of 200,000 volumes written on costly parchment (sheep skin) and its temples dedicated to the Emperor Trajan, Athena and Zeus.

 

Arriving in Athens, Greece

My trip to Greece and Turkey is a testament of God’s goodness and provision. After going to the Holy Land, I was told that Paul’s Journey + Seven Churches of Revelation was coming up and immediately, I started praying to God to help bring me there. I know I could have gone to more places in Asia which are much nearer and the fares much cheaper, but what I really wanted was a meaningful trip that would be educational and so in line with my faith. The Holy Land trip clearly impacted how I study God’s Word, having seen the places mentioned in both the Old and New Testament. Still, I knew there was more to see. Going to Greece meant retracing Paul’s steps as he shared the gospel far and wide despite the dangers, opposition and imprisonment that he faced. I will talk more about Turkey and our visit to Patmos in the next travel vlogs. Enjoy our arrival in Athens! If you are a follower of Jesus Christ and love God’s Word, this is a trip I recommend that you take!


God bless you!
