Letters to the Seven Churches
By William Ramsey
“Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamos, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.” And so began John of Patmos’s letter to the seven churches of first century Asia Minor. The study of these letters contained within the Book of Revelation has continued ever since. The Letters to the Seven Churches of Asia and their place in the plan of the Apocalypse is a fascinating piece of church history, perfect for anyone interested in the theological underpinnings of the early church.
