- Dr. Thomas Davis, Lipscomb University

The BAS Scholars Series program offers a quarterly, stand-alone presentation by noted scholars of the Bible and archaeology.

On June 2, 2024, join Thomas Davis for his compelling talk.


Paul on Cyprus: Crossing the Divide

Recent archaeological work on Cyprus allows a much better understanding of the context of the Pauline visit underscoring the cultural accuracy of the Acts account. A clearer picture of first century Cyprus is emerging, as a complex multi-cultural entity looking both east and west. When Paul arrived in Paphos, he had left his familiar environment and was open to new opportunities. These internal cultural divisions of the province help explain the change of Saul, the apostle to the Jews to Paul the apostle to the Gentiles.
