Philadelphia

Philadelphia (modern Alashehir) is one of the seven churches that John addressed in the book of Revelation (3:7–13).  It is located about 80 mi. east of Smyrna (Izmir) in western Turkey.

In the ancient sources it was known for housing a number of temples and in A.D. 17 it was destroyed by a devastating earthquake. In Revelation 3:12 the believer who "overcomes" is compared to a pillar (stability) in the temple of God, and on him/it three names will be written — compare the names inscribed on the columns of the temple of Zeus at Euromos.
