Satan, Synagogue of
(Revelation 2:9; Revelation 2:13), probably denotes the unbelieving Jews at Smyrna, the false zealots for the law of Moses, who at the beginning were the most eager persecutors of the Christians. They were very numerous at Smyrna, where Polycarp was bishop, to whom John writes. (See SMYRNA).
