Ancient Thyatira

QUESTION: Ancient Thyatira


Ancient Thyatira is located in Western Turkey about 42 miles inland from the Aegean Sea. The ancient city was known for its textiles and dyeing trade, evidenced by a number of artifacts and inscriptions from the various guilds of wool workers, linen weavers, tanners, and dyers. One of the dye merchants in Thyatira was Lydia, mentioned in Acts 16:11-15.

Today, Thyatira is known as the bustling city of Akhisar. The archaeological remains of ancient Thyatira are located within a fenced-off city block right in the heart of Akhisar.

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.

What is your response?

Yes, I want to follow Jesus

I am a follower of Jesus
