Chapter One

The Church in Northwest Asia Minor

We do not know when the church started in northwest Asia Minor. Paul planted churches in the southern Galatian region in the late A.D. 40s (Acts 13-14), but when he later tried to extend this work westward into Asia or northwestward into Bithynia, the Spirit prohibited him (16:6-7), apparently because the Lord wanted to use Paul in Macedonia and Achaia (Greece; 16:10). Paul's interest in those areas probably means that he did not know of churches there, for his general procedure was to go where the church did not yet exist (Rom. 15:20; 2 Cor. 10:14). Did the Lord know that some of the people cited in Acts 2:9 had already carried the gospel there, or was it his plan to leave the evangelization of that area to someone else at a later date? What we do know is that about fifteen years later 1 Peter witnesses to the existence of churches throughout this area. We should probably think of house churches scattered throughout the area, the larger ones consisting of thirty to forty members-sometimes several in one city (collectively forming the church in that city) and sometimes only one. They would be loosely connected as Christians traveled through the area for one reason or another, bringing news about other Christian groups as they went.

One thingthat we do know about the churches of this area is that they were largely Gentile in makeup. First Peter frequently refers to these Christians in terms that would not be appropriate for Jews. There is also none of the Jew-Gentile or circumcision-uncircumcision tension in this letter that is so common in Paul's writings. While Jews probably lived in these areas, as Acts 2:9 indicates, most of the church came from people native to the region. This made rejection by their neighbors as a result of their commitment to Christ so much more painful, since they had gone from being completely at home in the culture to being social outcasts.

Despite the problems mentioned in 1 Peter, these churches survived. When Trajan sent Pliny to Bithynia as Senatorial governor about A.D. 112, Pliny discovered, as he wrote to Trajan, "The contagion of that superstition [i.e., Christianity] has penetrated not the cities only, but the villages and the country." Pliny himself thought he could still stamp Christianity out, but he would fail and the area would remain a strong Christian center for centuries.
