EPISTLE OF PAUL TO PHILEMON - Chapter 1 - Verse 23

Verse 23. There salute thee Epaphras. The same persons who are here mentioned as greeting Philemon, are mentioned in the close of the epistle to the Colossians—furnishing a high degree of evidence that Philemon resided at Colosse. Epaphras was a member of the church there. See Barnes "Col 4:12".

 

My fellow-prisoner in Christ Jesus. In the cause of Christ. See Barnes "Phm 1:1".

The circumstance of his being a prisoner is not mentioned in the parallel place in the epistle to the Colossians, but nothing is more probable.

{e} "Epaphras" Col 1:7
