Seven Churches in Revelation – Sacred Places in Asia Minor

The seven churches in Revelation refer to seven literal churches described in Revelation, Chapters 2 and 3. These early Christian churches were located in Asia Minor during the era of the Roman Empire. Although the actual churches ceased to thrive in the centuries of Muslim control after the Romans, the archaeological remains of all seven locations currently exist in present-day Turkey. 

Seven Churches in Revelation – Then and Now

The seven churches in Revelation are located in western Asia Minor (present-day Turkey), accessible by way of the Aegean Sea and the ancient trade routes between the West and East. For various reasons, whether trade, military, or pure hedonism, these cities were major cultural hubs throughout history. During the first few centuries after Jesus Christ, these Roman-controlled cities were also important in early Christianity. Here are the seven churches of Revelation as described by the writer John in the late first century AD (click on the name to dig deeper into the archaeology):

 

Ephesus
(Revelation 2:1-7)
Smyrna
(Revelation 2:8-11)
Pergamum
(Rev. 2:12-17)
Thyatira
(Rev. 2:18-29)
Sardis
(Revelation 3:1-6)
Philadelphia
(Revelation 3:7-13)
Laodicea
(Rev. 3:14-22)

paulPaul in Anatolia (Asia Minor)

Paul was certainly a Jew and, by his own testimony, a Pharisee, but he was not a Judean. According to Acts 21:39, he announced when a captive in Jerusalem that "I am a Jew, from Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city...." Now Cilicia, a province of Rome, was in Anatolia, not in Judea, and Tarsus a city on it's Mediterranean coast. It is easy to see, then, that Paul most likely was familiar from a very early age with the region in which he was to travel.

 

By Paul's time (40-60 CE) Roman roads crisscrossed Anatolia, making travel feasible not only along the coast or by sea but through the heartland. Where precisely did Paul go? His letters and the Acts account show that he established churches in at least two of the Roman provinces in Anatolia: Galatia and Asia. There is ample evidence, for instance, that he lived and worked in Ephesus in Asia. But his letter "to the churches of Galatia" specifies no particular city, nor does it detail in what part of the province the churches are located.
