Ancient Philadelphia

QUESTION: Ancient Philadelphia


Ancient Philadelphia is located on the Cogamis River in western Asia Minor, about 80 miles east of ancient Smyrna. Philadelphia was known for its variety of temples and worship centers. Today, Philadelphia is known as the Turkish city of Alasehir. Due to a series of ancient earthquakes, there isn’t much left of ancient Philadelphia, and archaeology is limited to foundation stones and a few Roman columns.

What do you think?
We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
