Paul and Ephesus

Note that the following people are associated with the city of Ephesus: St Paul, Pricilla, Aquila, Apollos, St John, Mary (the mother of Jesus), St Luke, and Timothy.

As can be seen from the photos on the left, Ephesus was a substantial city in Paul's day. The agora is of especial importance because it is there that he probably carried on his business and witnessed to passers-by. CLICK ON PHOTOS for larger images, credits and excellent descriptions of their historical significance - most of these photos have a close connection with Paul. (Holy Land Photos.Org).
