Anabatours - There Are Too Many Place To See Anabatours - There Are Too Many Place To See
THERE ARE TOO MANY PLACE TO SEE

    The Seven Churches mentioned in The Revelation of John have long held unique place among the sites to be visited in Asia Minor. It is generaly thought that these seven were more a symbolic idea than a limited number needing immediate encouragement and admonition. But the impress of apocalyptic message has given these particular churches qualities of both obscurity and importance which theologians are still to interpret.
