New Testament Bible Dictionary Project: Romans/Paul/Ephesus
Romans:
This Epistle to the Romans, although usually shortened to just Romans, was written by the Apostle Paul around the times of 55 to 57 A.D. This is the 6th book of New Testament and out of all the letters or epistles that Paul wrote in his time, his letter to the Romans is the longest, most detailed and most ambitious. The two major personalities in this book are: the writer, the Apostle Paul, and Phoebe who delivered the letter to the Roman Christian Church.

Ephesus:
When we think of Ephesus and its relation to the New Testament, most of us would probably think of the letter by Paul called “The Letter to the Ephesians”. Ephesus was an ancient commercial port city in Asia Minor, or now, modern day Turkey. This city was actually the leading seaport within the Roman Empire. Ephesus had a hand dug, manmade harbor to its West, in which was later filled with sediment from the close lying Cayster River. Ephesus was accessible by both land and sea because it was situated along the river, but it was also in valley in the lower hills.
