Mind the gentiles.


“The next station is Thessalonica”: Surely St. Paul would’ve been grateful if, back in his day, he could have traveled around the Mediterranean enjoying the benefits of relatively cheap, kind-of-comfortable, public, air conditioned transportation. We all know that was not the case, but the brilliant mind behind the blog came up with this piece of beauty: a London Underground-Style map of Paul’s missionary journeys, as described in the Acts of the Apostles, including Cenchreae, where Paul cut his hair before sailing back to Syria (cf. Acts 18:18), and Paul’s intention of traveling all the way to Spain from Rome, for those who mind their geography while reading the Bible.
