The World of John the Revelator
The Events of the Last Days
and The Seven Churches of Asia
A Comprehensive Tour
October 13 - Oct 22, 2015
When is comes to gaining gospel knowledge, it is best have your spiritual feast along with a temporal one. This extensive tour includes lectures by Bruce H. Porter.
This tour is a study and presentation of the events of the "Last Days" as outlined in the Book of Revelation and LDS scripture. The tour includes Turkey and the Isle of Patmos.
The Book of Revelation is one of the grandest books in sacred literature, and the Lord clearly designs that the Saints should become familiar with it. Else, why the revelation in the Doctrine and Covenants section 77? This section is not a complete interpretation of the book. It is a key. A key is a very small part of the house. It unlocks the door through which an entrance may be gained, but after the key has been turned, the searcher for treasure must find it for himself. …
This trip includes:
A tour of Istanbul which lies at the heart of the Early Christian Church and Byzantine Empire, the Seven Churches, a cruise from Ephesus (the home of John the Revelator), the Isle of Patmos (where the Book of Revelation was received)
This is the best time of the year to travel in this part of the world. The summers can be very hot and humid.
