The seven revelation churches in Turkey are ancient churches that John wrote about in the Bible. Each church received a letter in which they were asked to repent for their sins and correct their current course. When the letters to the churches were sent, there were active Christian communities in each of the cities. Today, although some remains of these ancient cities and their churches are left behind, others have merged with the modern Turkish cities that are now located in the territories.
According to legend, all 7 churches lay along an ancient trade Road, and each church received a specific message that should be delivered to the congregation. The first church was at Ephesus, the first stop along the trade route, followed by Smyrna, now Izmir, then the great city of Pergamon, then Thyatira, prosperous, Sardis, Philadelphia, and finally Laodicea, near present-day Denizli. The messages were distributed sequentially, allowing them to circulate throughout the Christian community at that time. The letters were intended to correct the sins of those who belonged to the churches of each city. The cities are still an interesting destination for pilgrims from the Christians all over the world.
