First Century AD, Throne of Moses on “Footsteps of Paul” Cruise
Matthew 23:1-4 (KJV) Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
Interestingly, there is a 1st Century synagogue on the island of Delos, near Mykonos. The island of Delos is one of the most important mythological, historical and archaeological sites in Greece for secular tourism. Delos had a position as a holy sanctuary for their gods and is the birthplace of the Greek gods Apollo and Artemis.
On Delos, obscure amongst the noise of the Greek gods remains, you will have an opportunity to see a throne that has been known as the seat of, or Throne of Moses since the first century AD. The synagogue was very active during Christ’s time on earth. That Jesus would mention the Seat of Moses, when Delos, with Moses seat in the center of it was nearby, is thought provoking.
Most people enjoy the shopping of Mykonos and the beaches since it is a rest day. But, if you are looking for something more enriching, you will have an opportunity to sign up for a tour of Delos as well on our June “Footsteps of Paul” cruise.
