  2. What are some of the ways that Satan tries to hinder the work of the church?
  3.  What was the city of Ephesus like? How could their local context help in taking the Gospel to the ends of the earth? How might living in Ephesus produce some barriers for the Christians there?
  4. In what ways does Christ commend the church at Ephesus in Revelation 2:1-3?
  5. Why does Christ rebuke the church at Ephesus in Revelation 2:4?
