Write two 1-2 page papers on Jesus’ messages to Smyrna & Pergamum respectively.
In each paper, include answers to the following questions:
- How does the Geographical/Historical/Cultural context of each church impact your understanding of Jesus’ message to each church?
- How did Jesus reveal Himself to each church, and what is the significance of these revelations?
- What did Jesus “have against” each church? Why?
- What was Jesus’ solution to these problems, and what was His promise to the one who overcomes?
- How is Jesus speaking to you personally through His messages to these two churches?
