The modern city of Corinth is on a different site than the ancient city. The ruins of the old city are well preserved. You can walk down the street that Paul walked down and stand underneat the bench that Gallio sat upon. Doing so impresses one with the genuine humanity of the Biblical stories. We know about Gallio from non-Biblical stories and yet this ordinary Roman official had an important role in the history of salvation. All of which says that it is in our humanity that we will find the presence of God. Jesus speaks of grief and anguish and pain and joy and hope and all of those human feelings and emotions that constitute our condition in the world. Attending to those feelings are the road that God uses to help us understand the divine presence in our hearts.
