God new evidence

GOD: new evidence


Real Places: Neapolis and the Via Egnatia

'Testing Luke' #07


What's in the series?      Previous: Zeus and Hermes      Next: Lydia and the Place of Prayer

The book of Acts, in the Bible, records how Paul the apostle and his companions came through Neapolis (modern Kavala) in northern Greece, on their way to Philippi.

From Neapolis, Paul and his companions travelled along the Via Egnatia to Philippi. The Via Egnatia was the main road linking Rome to its empire in the east. Starting on the coast of Albania, it crossed the Republic of North Macedonia, into northern Greece, passing through Thessaloniki and Philippi, and on to Neapolis.

There are several places along the way where you can still see this ancient Roman road today. Luke does not specifically mention the Via Egnatia – but he does get it right that the nearest port to Philippi was Neapolis. In Luke's description of Paul's visit to Philippi, he gets local details like this right again and again.

‘Although I was once sharply critical of the argument to design, I have since to come to see that, when correctly formulated, this argument constitutes a persuasive case for the existence of God.’ – Professor Anthony Flew
