Introducing Ephesiology

Ephesiology[n.ih·fē·zē·äləʒē]: The Study of a Movement is the story of the church at Ephesus, the most documented of all the churches appearing in the New Testament.

It is not for another three years or so that he finally arrives on the West coast of Asia Minor withContinue reading Launching a Movement
