Our Biblical connection with the city of Smyrna, is with its reception of one of the seven letters in Revelation chapter two. The church here receives no rebuke by Jesus, only praise at how they are living out their faith in the world.
In this video, Center for Holy Lands Studies director Amy Flattery provides an overview of the Church in Smyrna and God's desire to interact in the lives of all people. This devotional is part of the series "Foundations: Lessons in Discipleship from the New Testament Church", which was filmed in Turkey (ancient Asia Minor).
