What is known about the church in Thyatira?

Revelation 2:18 (ESV)

18 “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: ‘The words of the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and whose feet are like burnished bronze.

We know nothing with certainty about the origins or development of the church of Jesus Christ in Thyatira. Luke’s observation that “all the residents of Asia heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Greeks” (Acts 19:10) during the time when Paul laboured in Ephesus suggests that this church came into being shortly after AD 50.
