Everybody knows the early church had a tough time of it. We gravitate toward thoughts of Nero or Christians fed to the lions at the Coliseum. But what about the daily stresses and struggles of being a Christ-follower? What did that look like? Next time on The Land and the Book, we’ll spend “a week in the life of Ephesus.” Join us as we travel back in time on The Land and the Book.
Dr. David deSilva is Professor of New Testament and Greek at Ashland Theological Seminary. David has written several books, including A Week in the Life of Ephesus.
