Welcome to www.ephesusscroll.com, a place for information about The Ephesus Scroll, a novel by Ben Chenoweth.
The novel was inspired by a visit to Ephesus in 2004. There are two timelines and the action cuts back and forth between them, like Neal Stephenson’s Cryptonomicon. The first timeline is set in 93 AD, during the reign of Domitian. The second is set in the recent present (2005-6), mostly in St. Petersburg, Russia. Having two timelines is my way of answering two important questions about the book of Revelation: “What did it mean for those who first received it” and “What does it mean for us today?”
