Answers to Worksheet
Polycarp hailed from Smyrna, the subject church of the second letter to the seven churches.

"Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes will not be hurt by the second death.’ (Revelation 2:10-11)
