Our Rome Christian Bible Tour includes a visit to see the first known use of the cross in art. The Apostles and early converts focused on the resurrection so therefore, the symbol of the cross was not used in the Early Church until around 430AD. A nondescript church in Rome shows the first use of the cross. We will go to this church and see it first-hand during our Rome Bible tours for 2014.
In addition, for those willing to walk about 20 minutes uphill during our visit of Rome’s Palentine Hill, we will see an early piece of graffiti of a crucifixion thought to be of Christ. There will be fantastic teaching surrounding this piece and its significance to Roman attitudes at that time.
Of course, we will visit the famed Catacombs which are home to the earliest paintings of Paul, John, Peter and Jesus other Apostles too. Join us for our October 2014 tour that take in these unique New Testament and Early Church Bible sites. What a joy to visit sites where our Early Church brothers and sisters worshipped together!
