All videos -Audio-bible - Ephesus is the city to which the epistle to the Ephesians was written to. The book of Acts talks about the Ephesians, this is the city where Paul so close to God and so filled with the Holy Spirit that people would come and from Paul' body were brought to the sick handkerchiefs and aprons, and people would be healed!
