Cappadocia was a large Roman Empire province whose eastern border was the Euphrates River. Established in 17 A.D., the province represented the easternmost territory controlled by Rome and the biggest of Asia Minor's provincial areas.

Those from Cappadocia were present in Jerusalem when God poured out his Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost in 30 A.D.

Important verses

Act 2:1 - 2, 4, 7 - 9
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting . . .

And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance . . .

And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia . . .

1Peter 1:1 - 2
Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
