Day 1: Smyrna – Pergamon – Thyateira (L)

Indeed, the devil will throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will face an ordeal for ten days”), home of great 2nd century Bishop Polycarp who was burned alive at the age of 85.
Then we will continue to Pergamum, “the compromising church”; Revelation 2:12-16 describes the city as “where Satan’s seat is”, a reference to the altar of Zeus.
After lunch we will proceed to Thyateira; “the adulterous church” that, as mentioned in the Revelations, tolerated the false prophets, Jezebel (Rev. 1: 11; 2: 18-29). We will stay overnight in a hotel close to Sardes.
Day 2: Sardes – Philedelphia – Laodicea (B, L)
Sardes, “the dead church”, another of the Seven Churches of Revelation. Jesus told Sardes, “I know thy works, that thou hast a name, that thou livest, and art dead”(Rev. 3: 1-6).
After visiting “the faithful church” of Philadelphia, we will drive to Laodicea the church chastised for being lukewarm, “You are neither cold nor hot” (Rev. 3: 15), and for being too comfortable incorporating pagan and Christian beliefs then we will drive about 2hrs 30 min to Kusadası and overnight stay.
