Greece and Turkey – Day 16

Monday afternoon, October 11, we drove to Sardis, Turkey, one of the seven churches of Asia that was known for its spiritual deadness, with the exception of a faithful remnant. The Jewish synagogue where Paul probably preached was being renovated so we could only see the outside (picture #1).

The gymnasium, built during the Byzantine Period is nearby (picture #2). On the other side of town is a small fourth century Byzantine chapel that the Christians built on the ruins of the Temple of Artemis (picture #3).
