St. Paul in Cyprus: Out of the Comfort Zone; Thomas W. Davis, PhD; February 18, 2019
While many of us are familiar with the life and work of the apostle Paul, how much do we actually know about the work conditions and society that he faced? In this presentation, Thomas Davis presents the archaeological evidence that gives us context and support for the Biblical text of Acts. In addition, he presents some information that may explain the actions of Paul and his companions during their missionary journeys.
Thomas Davis (PhD 1987, University of Arizona) is a professor of Archaeology and Biblical Backgrounds at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
