Lystra

Additional Links

Lys'tra. This place has two points of interest in connection, respectively, with St. Paul's first and second missionary Journeys:

(1) as the place where divine honors were offered to him, and where he was presently stoned, Acts 14:1;

(2) as the home of his chosen companion and fellow missionary Timotheus. Acts 16:1.

Lystra was in the eastern part of the great plain of Lycaonia, and its site may be identified with the ruins called Bin-bir-Kilisseh, at the base of a conical mountain of volcanic structure, named the Karadagh.
