What is Asia?
        , used only in the New Testament. It refers, not to the continent of Asia, nor to "Asia Minor" entire, but to a small Roman province on the coast, in the west of Asia Minor, and included the lesser provinces of Mysia, Lydia, and Caria; its capital was Ephesus. Acts 6:9; Acts 19:10; Acts 27:2; 1 Cor 16:19; 1 Pet 1:1; Rev 1:4. All the "seven churches" were in Asia. See Map.
