Revelation 1:11 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
1:11 Saying, What thou seest - And hearest. He both saw and heard. This command extends to the whole book. All the books of the New Testament were written by the will of God; but none were so expressly commanded to be written.

Is. xliv. 6: "Thus saith the Lord, the …

They stopped first at the port of Ephesus, where Paul left the others behind. While he was there, he went to the synagogue to reason with the Jews.
As he left, however, he said, "I will come back later, God willing." Then he set sail from Ephesus.
While Apollos was in Corinth, Paul traveled through the interior regions until he reached Ephesus, on the coast, where he found several believers.
I want you to know how much I have agonized for you and for the church at Laodicea, and for many other believers who have never met me personally.
