In this episode, we venture through the fertile Lycus Valley in the heart of Asia Minor with a mission to visit three cities that thrived during the 1st century: Hierapolis, Laodicea, and Colossae. We explore the grounds surrounding the Temple of Apollo, where people once believed the gateway to the underworld existed. We observe ancient architectural feats of this region and how they contributed to modern-day design. We analyze the Apostle John’s severe warning to early Christians who walked the lavish streets of Laodicea. We end among the unexcavated ruins of Colossae, where the Apostle Paul wrote in his famed letter to the Colossians during his arrest in Rome.
