The Letters to the Churches

The book of Revelation is one of the most intriguing books in the Bible. Within that book, chapters 2 and 3 contain seven letters addressed to seven churches, the seven churches of Asia Minor: Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea.

These are seven letters to seven churches that existed in the Roman province of Asia (present-day Turkey) at the end of the first century. They are unique in many ways, not the least of which the fact that they apparently never existed as separate letters; the original recipients of these epistles only read their contents in the context of the larger work.

This site presents resources and information on these fascinating letters. Though they were composed almost two thousand years ago, the letters to the seven churches of Asia continue to speak to us today. Come join us in rediscovering the timeless message contained in these writings.

We pray that the study of these letters will be a blessing to you. “He who has ears, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

Because of the Lamb,
Timothy Archer / Steve Ridgell

Timothy Archer and Steve Ridgell have studied these seven letters extensively. Their book Letters From the Lamb was published in 2009 and has become a popular resource on the subject. They are currently booking dates for 2015 for their 2-day seminar “Letters From The Lamb.”
