The tour opened our eyes to see how important and privileged we are to have our own bibles today without worrying about any persecution to own one. The tour also showed us what many people suffered through to get the Bible translated to the common language of their day.
We were very satisfied with this tour.
I love how he included the children and made them feel like they were important. [Our Tour Guide] was also very knowledgeable about the bible and the facts.
We learned about what our brothers had to endure in the past and how times were difficult back then. It was great to see Jehovah’s name on an artifact.
Amazing tie in of what the Greeks in the 1st century believed, helped me to understand the climate of the 1st century Christians. Also the way Jehovah has used time through the ages to accomplish his will shortly. My 15yr old bible student was holding steady attention!! Nephilum influence on […]
The tour encouraged me to dig deeper into the Bible; looking up the references from the faithful and discreet slave after reading an account. I appreciated the background information on the Greeks and Romans & how their culture influenced people and how it impacted Christians and their faith. I appreciated […]
I loved the tour and was happy that although my kids were tired they paid attention, enjoyed it and learned something. I was also grateful that our guide helped them to participate.
“Very encouraging tour, wonderful examples of endurance, great way for us to build up our faith and help us keep enduring current and future trials.”
Everyone in the group which we had about 26, felt that their faith was strengthened. It was enlightening to get the background information on the Scriptures which made them have more meaning to each and every one of us.
It was great! The words I keep hearing are enthralling, both tour guides were personable, tours just the right amount of time, wonderful!
I feel that I’ve been encouraged by Jehovah to keep on enduring to the end.
Connecting physical artifacts to scriptures that describe or refer to them strengthens one’s faith in the accuracy (truth) of the scriptures.
I have never been interested in art, especially paintings. This tour focused, not only on the many sculptures, but also on many paintings that I thought had no ties to Bible history. We were amazed at the many connections to characters and events in the Bible. Thank you!
Very engaging, asked great questions, kept us interested, great sense of humor, very knowledgable.
