Thanks to Will Rutherford who pointed me to this Intro to Corinth educational video created by St. Paul enthusiast Russ Wessley to set the scene for St. Paul in Corinth.
The video called “Introduction to Corinth – Part 1” is the first of a series designed to establish the relationship of Paul to Corinth. The video includes an introduction (start to :54), overview of geography (:54-5:27), history overview (5:28-7:30), and Paul in Corinth overview (7:30-end).
The video is basic but useful for showing the principal conception of the commercial facility of the isthmus. It also contains some good satellite images and video clips including a fun clip from the History channel of men and animals transporting ships over the diolkos in a light-paced jog! (starting at 4:00). Can anyone identify the specific History Channel video?
One inaccuracy in the video: Corinth is not “on the wrong side of the line” as he notes in 4:03.
