Caius - bishop of Ephesus

We just learned about Linus - Bishop of Rome, one of the seventy disciples.

Another of the seventy was Caius - bishop of Ephesus.

The city of Ephesus used to be part of the Roman empire, and is now part of the country of Turkey.
In the Bible there is a book called "Ephesians" that was a letter that the Apostle Paul wrote to the church in the city of Ephesus.

Some time around 100 AD, Caius (also known as Gaius) was the leader of the church in the city of Ephesus.
