Antipas


Posted on May 18th, by Ryan in Revelation 2:12-27. No Comments

I’ve been mulling over in my mind why I like the letter to Pergamum so much better than I did the letter to Smyrna. I think the answer has to be Antipas. I’m a sucker for a hero and I as I read the letter, I said to myself ‘Way to go Antipas!” I’m proud of Antipas. I’m not sure what right to be proud of him I have: I didn’t do anything to help him. That said, he’s a hero of the faith and to the extent he’s given us his example then our church today is his legacy.

Lord, remember your faithful witness Antipas.

Antipus, thank you.
