Pt. 24: Seven Churches – Maps of the Seven Churches

Maps of the Seven Churches

The seven churches, during the time that John wrote to the churches in 95 AD, was located in Asia Minor, which is present-day Turkey.  John was exiled on the Isle of Patmos in the Aegean Sea when persecution was fierce against Christians.  While on Patmos, he had the vision of Jesus Christ and all the things he wrote about in the Book of Revelation. 

Each church was situated along a major highway in the Roman Empire.  The distance from one church to the next closest church was anywhere from 20 – 50 miles away.
