What ever happened to Ephesus? part #1

Ephesus became the center of Christianity in the first century. It was a free city in the Roman empire. It was over 100,000 people. It had paved streets, street lights, sewer systems, water system and a good harbor. The agriculture tried to keep up with the population. Paul preached and was imprisoned in Ephesus. Paul left Titus as the first Bishop. Eventually John, the brother of James, became Bishop.

Wealth changed the Christians. When John wrote about them, 40 years later, in Revelations, Jesus asked the question why have you left your first love?

Christianity isn’t about wealth. It isn’t about status. It has nothing to do with earthly goods. The parable of the eye of the needle was to show that we shouldn’t be deceived by earthly treasures.
