Timeless Treasures: A Journey Through Greece’s UNESCO-listed Historical Sites

Get ready to discover the marvels of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, those remarkable places that showcase the best of our shared human heritage. Greece, nestled in the Mediterranean, is home to an impressive 19 of these treasures, ranging from ancient ruins to serene monasteries, and idyllic seaside villages. Join us as we take a leisurely stroll through some of these enchanting sites.

Athens Acropolis

Exploring the Acropolis is undoubtedly a highlight of any visit to Athens. Perched majestically above the city, this ancient citadel boasts a collection of iconic buildings that have stood the test of time. Among these architectural marvels are the Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Erectheion, and the Temple of Athena Nike.

Constructed during the Golden Era of Athens in the 5th century BCE, the Acropolis stands as a testament to the city’s victory against the Persians and the birth of democracy. Crafted by master craftsmen of the time, the Acropolis is a living legacy of classical artistry and innovation.

At the heart of the Acropolis lies the Parthenon, a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena, patron deity of Athens. Designed by the brilliant architect Iktinos and adorned with exquisite sculptures by Phidias, the temple exudes classical elegance with its 136 fluted Doric columns, each meticulously carved and arranged.

Acropolis, Athens

From its days as a place of worship to its subsequent transformations into a Christian church and later a mosque, the Parthenon has always been a symbol of resilience and fortitude. Tragically, the temple suffered destruction during clashes between Venetians and Turks in the 17th century. Today, the Acropolis stands as a timeless emblem of ancient splendour. Each stone tells a story, each column whispers of a bygone era, inviting you to delve deeper into the rich tapestry of Greek history and culture.

Below the grandeur of the Acropolis lies a bare marble hill known as the Areopagus, or Mars Hill. Dating back to the 8th century BCE, this site served as the supreme court of the ancient city of Athens. Its members, Areopagites of aristocratic origin, held lifelong tenure as the city’s highest magistrates. Here, the Areopagus presided over trials of grave offences such as murder, bribery, and treason. It was upon this venerable hill that Apostle Paul delivered his famous speech about the identity of the “Unknown God”, as recounted in the biblical account of Acts 17.

Ancient Delphi

Lying on the slopes of Mount Parnassus, high above the Gulf of Corinth, Ancient Delphi reigned as the supreme oracle of antiquity. Known far and wide across the ancient Greek world and beyond, it was revered as the omphalos, or navel, of the world and the sacred sanctuary of the Greek god Apollo.

Temple of Apollo, Delphi

Dating back to the 8th century BCE, this sanctuary was home to the renowned oracle of of Delphi, presided over by the priestess Pythia, famed for her prophetic abilities. Seekers would flock to her for guidance before embarking on significant undertakings, recognizing her counsel as invaluable throughout the ancient world.

One important destination not to be missed is the Archaeological Museum of Delphi, housing an impressive collection of artifacts unearthed from the site and the surrounding region. Among its treasures are marble statues, coins, jewellery, and other relics of the past. Particularly notable are the renowned exhibits of the Charioteer and the Sphinx.

Delphi was also the home of the Pythian Games, the second most important athletic event in Greece after the Olympics. Beyond its religious and athletic significance, Delphi wielded political influence serving as a unifying force among the region’s city-states. Nevertheless, with the rise of Christianity, Delphi gradually declined, marking the end of its ancient prominence.

Jewish New Year in Israel | Rosh Hashana 2023
Rosh Hashana 2023

Shana Tova! Happy New Year!

Rosh Hashana is a two-day holiday that celebrates the start of the new year according to the Jewish calendar. This year, Rosh Hashana begins in the evening of Friday, 15 September 2023 and ends in the evening of Sunday, 17 September 2023. Rosh Hashana commemorates the creation of the world and begins a 10-day period called the High Holy Days that ends on Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement. During Rosh Hashana, people take time to review the mistakes they made in the past year, and they also plan the changes they hope to make in the new year.

Blowing of the Shofar

The blowing of the shofar is an essential part of Rosh Hashana. It is said that the sound of the shofar is a call to repent and a reminder for Jews that God is their king. Tradition requires the shofar blower to play four sets of notes on Rosh Hashana: tekiah, a long blast; shevarim, three short blasts; teruah, nine staccato blasts; and tekiah gedolah, a very long blast.

Symbolic Foods

On the two nights of Rosh Hashana, Jews enjoy a festive meal. In many families, women and girls light the candles at different times before sundown on the first night of the holiday and after nightfall on the second night of the holiday. The meal begins with Kiddush, a blessing over kosher wine, round challah bread often studded with sweet raisins, and other foods that express positive wishes for a plentiful, spiritually uplighting, and sweet new year.

Symbolic foods include apples dipped in honey representing the hope for a sweet year ahead, a fish or ram head signifying the desire to be at the head of the class, pomegranates symbolizing the wish to have a year full of mitzvot and good deeds, and carrot tzimmes as a symbol of prosperity and good fortune.

Shana Tova

It is very festive in Israel around the time of Rosh Hashana. Friends, neighbours, family, shopkeepers, and sometimes even strangers in the street often greet one another with the Hebrew phrase, “shana tova”, meaning “for a good year”. Shops and markets are very busy because people are stocking up on food for meals, and gifts for relatives and close friends. There is also a lot of traffic on the roads in the lead-up to the festival because Israelis are travelling around the country to meet up with families and friends.

To a happy, healthy, and a sweet new year!

The Seven Churches of Revelation in Turkey

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.” Revelation 1:11, NKJV

The apostle John wrote the book of Revelation while in exile on the rocky island of Patmos. He was told to write and send it to the seven churches, the revelation of Jesus. The messages to the seven churches are timeliness, applicable since the 1st century and to all generations of the church since.

Ephesus: The Loveless Church (Rev 2:1-7)

The first letter is written to the church of Ephesus. The city had one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the famous Celsus Library, the façade of which still stands today. The church receives perhaps one of the best commendations a church ever receives but they were rebuked for leaving their first love. Hard-working for God but the church had lost their love of Him and other people.

Smyrna: The Persecuted Church (Rev 2:8-11)

Smyrna is the only one of the seven that still exists today as a major city. It was a beautiful city and frequently referred to as “the Ornament of Asia”. It was famed for its schools of medicine and science, fine library, and athletic contests. The letter has no censure for the church but commendation and encouragement for their faith.

Pergamos: The Compromising Church (Rev 2:12-17)

Due to its natural elevation, Pergamos was considered impregnable, with many kings depositing their treasures here for safekeeping. It was the seat of the Roman province’s supreme court. However, Pergamos was a centre of pagan worship. The church is commended for its faithfulness but rebuked for tolerating false teachings.

Thyatira: The Corrupt Church (Rev 2:18-29)

Thyatira was not a naturally strong city; it had been captured, rebuilt, and destroyed many times. In later years, the manufacturing industries came to prominence and were known for their trade guilds, a situation of work that made it very difficult to be a Christian. The message rebukes the church for tolerating a false prophetess who led many astray and urges the church to repent.

Sardis: The Dead Church (Rev 3:1-6)

Sardis was founded in the 12th century and became the capital of the Lydian kingdom, one of the richest kingdoms of the ancient world. Carelessness, sleepiness, and overconfidence led the city to its destruction. Like the city, the church started with great promise but quickly faded. The letter urges the church to wake up and follow the way of the Lord.

Philadelphia: The Faithful Church (Rev 3:7-13)

Philadelphia was known as Decapolis and sometimes called “Little Athens” due to the magnificence of its public buildings. The modern name of the city is Alasehir which means “city of God” or the “Red City”. The message to the church reveals perhaps the best condition of any of the churches. This small but exceptional group of believers remained faithful whilst many others did not.

Laodicea: The Lukewarm Church (Rev 3:14-22)

Laodicea was an incredibly wealthy and well-ordered city with proud, arrogant, and self-satisfied inhabitants. They were accustomed to leisure, pleasure, and entertainment. The letter gives the church no affirmation and calls it lukewarm, neither cold nor hot. Their level of self-awareness is non-existent, and they do not know that they are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked.
