Miletus

Additional Links

On the west coast of southern Asia Minor were the important towns of Miletus and Ephesus. They were about fifty kilometres apart and fell within the Roman province of Asia. (For map and other details see ASIA.)

When Paul visited Miletus towards the end of his third missionary journey, he invited the elders of the church at Ephesus to come and meet him at Miletus. He gave them some important instructions and warnings and then left for Jerusalem (Acts 20:15-17). He visited the town on at least one other occasion, not long before his final imprisonment and execution (2 Timothy 4:20).
