Lystra


Lys’tra. This place has two points of interest in connection respectively with St. Paul’s first and second missionary journeys: (1) as the place where divine honors were offered to him, and where he was presently stoned, Acts 14; (2) as the home of his chosen companion and fellow missionary Timotheus. Acts 16:1. Lystra was in the eastern part of the great plain of Lycaonia, and its site may be identified with the ruins called Bin-bir-Kilisseh, at the base of a conical mountain of volcanic structure, named the Karadagh.
