The city of Corinth was always great and wealthy, and it was well equipped with men skilled both in the affairs of state and in the craftsmans art. So wrote Roman historian and geographer Strabo about 7 B.C. About 50 A.D., when the apostle Paul arrived in Corinth on the isthmus connecting mainland Greece with the Peloponnese, he found a prosperous commercial city undergoing major remodeling by expert architects, builders and artisans. The elaborate, elegant remains of Roman Corinth and of the Greek city that preceded it have been revealed by nearly 100 years of careful excavation. In Corinth in Pauls TimeWhat Can Archaeology Tell Us? Victor Paul Furnish displays the roads, shops, temples and artifacts that Paul saw and explains how they help us to understand better what Paul said and how he lived.
