In this Drive Thru History Series you will receive three shows with a running time of over 90 minutes.
In the first episode Dave will hop on a car ferry that will take him to a road that winds up the mysterious mountain where you could once find the Oracle at Delphi. After some weird fun Dave looks at the origin of the Olympics, follows the conquests of Alexander the Great, and begins a look at the Apostle Paul.
In the second episode Dave gets lost…again…this time in Athens. Dave will take you to the Acropolis and the Parthenon for a fun, fast look at the finest architecture in the world. Next you get a quick lesson in Greek philosophy and learn about Plato, Aristotle and Socrates. Last, but not least Dave looks at the impact of a visit to Athens by the Apostle Paul. In this episode, Drive Thru History presents what is perhaps the most thorough, yet condensed, (about 15 minutes) story of Paul’s missionary journeys ever produced for television.
In the last episode Dave visits the ruins of ancient Corinth. In this episode you’ll learn about the strategic importance of the city of Corinth through the ages. Dave examines the decadence of the Corinthians during the Roman era. Corinth sits near an isthmus, and you will see why understanding the geography of Corinth was so important to understanding the people of Corinth. Dave rides down the Corinthian canal and discusses the how an ancient dream became a modern reality. Last, Dave will examine the Apostle Paul’s life in Corinth and his writings to the church there-writings that forever changed history.
