Biblical country

Biblical Macedonia – Christianity’s second fatherland.

Country in which the New Testament was born. They finally reached the coast at Troas, where Paul had a vision of a Macedonian begging him,, Come to Macedonia and help us,, (Act 16:9). Paul took this as a God’s call. Macedonia is not only a country mentioned in the Bible, but it is also the only  country on the European continent in which some parts of the New Testament were written. The Apostle Paul wrote the second Epistle to the Corinthians and the first Epistle to Timothy.

Mysteries of Macedonia

Wholly unsolved riddles. Alexander of Macedon golden sarcophagus, a treasure that would fetch untold millions today, has never been found, and there are those who believe it lies in a crypt yet uncovered. The Knights Templar marchee across the great Roman road that runs across Macedonia on their way back from Jerusalem, where some believe they stole the ark of the Covenant… perhaps that artifact is still buried somewhere around here.

Craddle of culture.

The cave drawings and the rock art testify for the ancient beginning of  the human spirit and the need to express its life through pictures. The houses with hearts, the pottery, the weapons and tools, the jewelry and decoration items from the Neolithic and Bronze age prove this was the place of birth of settlements and as historians, archeologists and architects use to say: “The need to live together on one place with others, is the beginning of a civilization”.
