Moriel is an international multi-faceted ministry of Jewish and non-Jewish regenerate believers one in Jesus the Messiah and is committed to the evangelization beginning with the Jews and also people of other faiths including Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and theologically deviant expressions of Christendom including Roman Catholicism (which we view as aberrational much as we deem Talmudic Judaism to be likewise largely unscriptural).

To this end Moriel plants churches, and operates missions especially among impoverished children in the Third World. While mainly rejecting the later midrashic writings of the rabbis, Moriel is also a teaching ministry seeking to exegetically interpret scripture with the Judeo-Christian hermeneutic of the apostolic church including the midrashic exegesis used by Jesus and Paul (midrash is a term found multiple times in the Tenak or Old Testament).

Lastly, Moriel is active in the area of discernment withstanding the popular apostasy in the contemporary church that The Word of God warns would precede the return of Jesus. We remain firmly aligned to the conviction that contemporary events in The Middle East , Europe, and in the church make the present time in history different from other eras when people thought it was the last days. We affirm the belief that Jesus is coming again and prophecy of His return is radically being fulfilled increasingly.

Suggested Itinerary

Tuesday 4 October


Breakfast at the hotel. Morning visit to Philippi passing by Amphipolis (short stop). In Philippi Apostle Paul came and worked, establishing a strong church. To this congregation, later he sent his Philippian letter. Of all the churches Paul founded, probably none was as near and dear to him as the church at Philippi (Acts 16:9-33).  We see the river where Lydia is thought to have been baptized, the ruins of a prison where traditionally is said that Paul and Sylas had been kept: the Agora, 5th and 6th century Basilica and the Theater. Philippi was named after Philip II, king of Macedonia father of Alexander the Great. The Roman road Via Egnatia crossed this city and ran from Rome to Byzantium. Lunch on your own. After the visit, we continue to Kavala, the ancient port of Neapolis (Acts 16:11) for a brief orientation tour of the city. Late that afternoon we return to Thessaloniki.  Meeting after dinner at hotel and overnight.

Wednesday 5 October


Breakfast at the hotel. Check-out. Morning departure from Thessaloniki towards Kalambaka. On our way we stop in Vergina  (ancient Aigai), the first capital of Macedonia, where we visit the most important tomb ever discovered that of Philip II of Macedonia, the father of Alexander the Great. Lunch on your own. Continue on to Litochoro, a small town from the southwest part of which begin almost all climbing routes to Mount Olympus.  Short stop to view Mt Olympus, the highest mountain in Greece (its highest peak Mytikas rises to 2,919 metres (9,570 ft), notable in Greek Mythology as the hole of the 12 Olympians).  Continue on to Kalambaka where we check-in at the hotel for dinner. Meeting in the evening. Overnight. 

Thursday 6 October


Breakfast at the hotel. Check-out. In the morning we enjoy a spectacular drive up to visit Meteora. Colossal symmetrical gray and reddish boulders, as though pushed upwards from the bowels of mother earth by an invisible hand, sustain breathtaking beautiful monasteries perched precariously high above the ground. Lunch on your own. After the visit we leave Kalambaka and start driving south towards Delphi. Check-in at hotel for dinner and overnight.

Friday 7 October


Breakfast at the hotel. Check-out. Morning visit of archaeological site and museum of Delphi. Lunch on your own. On our way back to Athens we stop at Thermopylae, to see the statue of Leonidas.

Meeting after dinner and overnight. 

Saturday 8 October


Breakfast at the hotel. At 8:00 in the morning our excursion takes us out of Athens by the Saronic Gulf, where in 480 BC history’s root was changed! The small Grecian fleet managed to defeat the enormously powerful armada of the Persians.

From here, via the historic Corinthian Canal  (photo stop) we arrive at Ancient Corinth(Acts 18:1-18).  It was Corinth where Apostle Paul came and worked, established a thriving church, subsequently sending two of his epistles now part of the New Testament. Here, we see all of the sites associated with his ministry: the Agora, the Temple of Apollo, the Roman Odeon, the Bema and Gallio’s Seat.  The small archaeological museum here is an absolute must! We return to Athensfor our afternoon sightseeing tour.  We will climb up to the marble-capped Acropolisand visit the famous Parthenon and the Erechtheion. Then, we go to nearby Mars' Hill (or Areopagus) where Paul delivered his well-known sermon and spoke about the inscription: “to an unknown god”. Our tour continues with the highlights of modern Athens: we pass by the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Parliament House, the Academy, the University of Athens and the National Library, the Panathenian Stadium, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Hadrian’s Arch. In late afternoon we return to hotel. Meeting after dinner and overnight.

Wednesday, Oct. 12: Ephesus - Laodicea - Pamukkale

Drive to Ephesus visit to the ancient city of Ephesus including the Basilica of St. John and the Ephesus archaeological museum. The Apostle Paul preached to the Ephesians and lived here for three years. This church also received an epistle from him. We tour the spectacular ruins where excavations still continue in this once great and important city, which was founded in the 10th century BC.
Walk through history along marble streets lined with wonderful public buildings, among them the Baths of Scholastica, the Library of Celsus, the Temple of Hadrian and the Theatre. The Temple of Diana of the Ephesians, another of the seven wonders of the ancient world, was built in this city. We visit the Basilica of St. John after lunch we proceed to Laodicea (present name Denizli) yet another of the Seven Churches of Asia Minor [Rev. 1:11; 3:14; Col. 2:1; 4:13-16]. Here we see the ancient theatre, the remains of basilica and ancient stone water pipes.

We continue on to Pamukkale for check-in at hotel, dinner and overnight.

Thursday 13 October

Hierapolis - Philadelphia - Sardes - Smyrna

In the morning we visit the healing city of Hierapolis, actually Pamukkale, the white «cotton fortress» where hot mineral water bursts from the earth and cascades over steep cliffs forming pools, channels and stalactites. The therapeutic waters were known to the founders of Hierapolis and of Laodicea in 190 BC. 

In Hierapolis [Col. 4:13] we will see the Martyrium of the Apostle Philip where he was martyred during the persecutions ordered by Domitian and we will visit the Gate of Domitian, the Arcadian Way, the 2nd century AD Theatre, the Nymphaion, the Temple of Apollo, the Plutonium and the Necropolis.

We continue on to Philadelphiawhich was rebuilt with help from Emperor Tiberius.

At Sardis(Rev. 3:1-5), your thoughts will turn to the Old Testament period following the 586 B.C. destruction of Jerusalem.

That was the time when the phrase “rich as Croesus” originated. Croesus (560-546 B.C.) was the King of Lydia, and Sardis was his capital. Gold was discovered in the Pactolus River at Sardis and it was here that coinage began, as we know it.  Cyrus and the Persians defeated and captured Croesus for all his wealth and made Sardis the administrative centre for the western part of their empire. The fabled Royal Road connected Sardis with the Persian cities to the east. Sardis was the hardest hit of the twelve cities destroyed in the earthquake of A.D. 17. Emperor Tiberius, according to the Annals of the historian Tacitus, gave much relief towards its rebuilding. Your visit to Sardis will include the imperial court and the ancient Jewish synagogue. You will rest in the shade of the Temple of Artemis, while studying in the light of prophetic Scripture.

Finally, enjoy dinner at one of Smyrna’s famous kebab or seafood restaurants. Overnight stay in Izmir.

Friday 14 October

Thyatira - Pergamum - Izmir - London

Today, we will visit our final two of the Seven Churches of Revelation. At Thyatira (Rev. 2: 18-28), you will see the ruins of an ancient commercial centre, located in the fertile valley where the trade route passed. One of the town's cloth and dye merchants was a woman named Lydia, who conducted business as far away as Philippi, where she became the first European convert to Christianity, during Paul's second missionary journey (Acts 16:11-15). A most memorable experience will be Pergamum, with its acropolis and Great Theatre, the steepest of the ancient world. Revelation 2:12-16 describes the city as “where Satan’s seat is,” a reference to the altar of Zeus, where we pause for reflection on the fulfillment of Scripture. Nearby, visit the Red Basilica; once a pagan temple, it later converted into a Christian church.   Finally, walk through the Pergamum Asclepion, the famous medical centre of antiquity. Drive back to Izmir airport for flight back to London departing at 18.00
