ANTIOCH IN PISIDIA
The site of Pisidian Antioch was discovered in 1833 by the British Chaplain at Smyrna, Francis Arundel. Located in the ancient Pisidia Region of antiquity, Antioch played an important role in the life of Paul and in the history of Christian Faith. After visiting the synagogues and arguing with the Jews of Antioch, Paul said his words which changed the course of the history: ' From now on, we turn to Gentiles.'
With these words, Paul saves Christianity from the narrow window of Jewish faith and opens the gates of Christian faith to the rest of the world.
