Milepost 1: Ephesus

Primary References: Revelation 2:1-7

The church of Ephesus was a busy church full of works. They zealously defended the faith and fought hard to keep doctrine pure. As shown by the presence of the Temple of Artemis, ardent pagan worship confronted them.  Their zeal and fervor for Jesus caused them to become so busy that they lost their fervent deep love for Jesus.  Jesus calls this church to come back to him.  If they do not return, He will remove their candlestick.   For those overcoming, Jesus lets them eat from the tree of life.

Ephesus represents the first church period, the age of the apostles which ended as the apostles died (since the requirements for apostles prevented their replacement).  The start of the Ephesus church period is generally set on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2.  Its end is typically set sometime around 100 A.D., with the death of the last of the apostles.  The following table summarizes the church of Ephesus.
