Where am I?

St Paul wrote two letters to this city's inhabitants. Later residents were accused of gardening.

Yes, but wasn't Timothy at Ephesus the first time Paul wrote to him?

Not that I was expecting a trick question...

Thessaloniki?

Corinth can't be write because he wrote at least three and possibly four, though only two made it into the Bible.

There are two books of Paul's letters to Corinth in the NT, and two books of Paul's letters to Thessalonica. But no-one amongst Biblical scholars seriously suggest that there were only two letters, in either case -- we think that the books were edited together from several documents.

Nevertheless: Corinth or Thessalonica. I don't get the "gardening" reference at all.

I said "two", not "only two". Gardening will be explained in a post later today.

Tee hee. figured it'd be a stretch but at least it had a "accused of gardening" link :)

Babylon... I think.

Of course, the Hanging Gardens.

But that probably makes this a trick. Crap.
