Some Visitor Comments:

“I am a minister of a Christian church in Australia. I am seeking permission to uses several of your excellent photographs of the ancient site of Ephesus in an introduction to a teaching series on the Biblical book of Ephesians. The photos which would be used in a powerpoint will help provide some background and insight to this ancient city. “ - Neale Proellocks minister of Hume Street Church of Christ, Australia

“I was really moved with your work on Ephesus and would wish that I had all the Pictures. Am Reverend Minister with the Presbyterian Church of Ghana and a seminarian at Trinity Theological Seminary Legon Ghana perusing BTH Course. I would be grateful if could have more of such pieces to help me in my studies now and other high levels. Thanks” - Rev. Daniel Kwesi Bediako.

“Thank you for allowing me to use such great photo's for my Bible class on Ephesians. They will help us in our efforts to gain and understanding of what the city of Ephesus was like in New Testament times.” - Graham Wall ~ Bible Student at the Macquarie School of Biblical Studies, preaching and teaching in Sydney, Australia.

"Thank you for granting permission for me to use some of your pictures for educational purposes. I am leading a study in two churches about the New Testament letters of First and Second Timothy. These letters were written by the Apostle Paul to his young protégé Timothy while Timothy was living in Ephesus during the reign of Nero in the first century A.D. The pictures are to help the class understand something of the environment of this important city during that time period, and begin to understand that culture. Thank you again for your generosity!" - Chuck Harrison

"Thank you for making such good photographs available on the web" - Randolph Melville
