Little remains of ancient Corinth. These ruined arches and entryways to shops on what was once the Agora call on ones imagination to see the gleaming buildings complete with statuary as they once were.

One sees acres of buildings and pavement stones, the well known synagogue lintel inscription and the ‘Bema’ on which the Roman proconsul would hold court. The Bema was also the public platform where St.Paul had to plead his case when the Corinthians hauled him up in front of the Roman governor Gallio in 52 AD.

The Archaeological Museum of Ancient Corinth contains a number of artifacts of religious interest, including inscriptions of Gallio and Erastus, both mentioned in the Book of Acts; a synagogue inscription, menorah reliefs and votive offerings of terracotta body parts to Asklepios.

The Biblical Side of Ancient Corinth!

When Paul arrived in 51CE, the Corinth he saw was little more than 100 years old, but was five times as large as Athens and the capital of the province.

During his 2 year stay in Corinth, Apostle Paul preached the local Jews and Greeks about Jesus’ mission, before continuing his missionary journey to Ephesus. He set, however, strong foundations of Christianity in Greece.
