Ephesian; Ephesians


e-fe'-zhan (Ephesios), e-fe'-zhanz:

A term which, as in Acts 19:28,34,35 and Acts 21:29, was applied to those natives or residents of the city of Ephesus who were adherents of the cult of the goddess Diana. A Jew or a Christian, though a native of Ephesus, would probably have been designated as such, rather than as an Ephesian.
