  • Where r these churches that Paul wrote to physically/even currently located?

    So Church of Corinth, Phillipi, Thesolonica, Galatia, do these places/churches, still exist since Paul wrote his letters decades after Jesus died in 60ish AD? and where?

    Churches are not always a place, but a people, and many churches were held in secret.
    If Satan can keep us busy swinging our swords at one another, there is no hope of a united attack on the kingdom of darkness. KJV, NIV, ESV or ABCDEFG; there is no time to bicker over such things. We'll devour each other if allowed to continue. We should grab the marching orders written in the way we best understand and get to work.

      In Greece:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corinth (population 36,556)
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thessaloniki (population 363,987)
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippi (ruined, but a village is nearby: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filippoi)

      In Galatia (now Turkey):

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konya (Iconium, now a large city, population 980,973, a centre of Sufi Islam)
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derbe (its Christian church was burned and buried under a mountain of soil by the Roman Emperor Diocletian, and everybody left)
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lystra (ruined, a small village remains)

        Mostly in the Asia Minor area (Modern day Turkey). So much has happened in two thousand years. Doubtful if the original congregations exist. Probably swallowed up into the Eastern Orthodox church when it split from Rome. The true Christian church went underground and has always existed in one form or another ever since.

        all the best...

          Apart from the ones in Greece.

          Christians have been worshipping in Greece for a long time. Here are some of the churches in Thessaloniki today, for example:

          Greek Orthodox: 6 Ayias Sofias and others

          Roman Catholic: 19 Frangon, Services at 8am every day and 10am on Sundays in Greek; at 7pm on Sundays in English

          Anglican: at German Evangelical Church, 13 Paleon Patron Germanou, Holy Communion at 10.30am every Sunday. Reverend David Hewitt

          Armenian: 4 Dialeti, Sundays at 9.30pm

          Greek Evangelical Church: Rev. George Goudas

          Apostolic Pentecostal Church: Rev. John Demetriades

          Biblical Church of Thessaloniki: Rev. Timothy Antoniadis

          I'm sure some of these churches could do with a prayer from us.

            General question: what do these have to do with the original question on the original churches???

              Just a quick correction: based on the content of his letters and their corresponding time frames in the book of Acts, we know that not all of Paul's letters were written in the 60s AD. The letters we have were written in the range of 45-65 AD (that's a twenty-year span).
