Philemon 1:2 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
And to our beloved Apphia - This was a female (Greek ἀγαπητῇ agapētē), and was probably the wife of Philemon.
And Archippus our fellow-soldier - See the notes at Colossians 4:17. It has been supposed that he was a son of Philemon, and this would appear not to be improbable, as he was one of his family. On the term "fellow-soldier," see the notes at Philippians 2:25. It is applied here to one who was a minister of the gospel, and who is spoken of in con nection with Paul as enlisted under the banners of the Captain of salvation, and waging a warfare with the wickedness of the world; compare the notes at 2 Timothy 2:3-4. That Archippus was a minister of the gospel, is clear from Colossians 4:17.
And to the church in thy house - Either the church that commonly met in his house, or more probably that was composed of his own family; compare the notes at Romans 16:5.
I commend to you our sister Phoebe, who is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea;
also greet the church that is in their house. Greet Epaenetus, my beloved, who is the first convert to Christ from Asia.
But I thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, who is also your messenger and minister to my need;
Say to Archippus, "Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it."
2 Timothy 2:3
Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
