121-128). 3. Greetings (w. 23-24) VERSES 23-24 Epaphras, my fellow prisoner
in the Messiah Jesus [in Jesus' service], sends greetings to you, [as do] my fellow
workers Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke. All names in the list of greetings in
the Letter to the Colossians (4: lOff.) occur as well in the list of greetings in
Philemon. However, the name "Jesus the Just" is omitted in Philemon. Lohse
accepts a suggestion by E. Amling ("Eine Konjektur im Philemonbrief," pp. 261-
262) to which ...

When Paul wrote to the Philippians, Timothy was come to Him, and joined in that
Letter: and when Paul wrote to the Colosssians, Timothy joined him in it; and
Tychicus, being returned, brought it to Colossè, iv. 7, in Company with Onesimus,
iv. 9; who also carried the Letter from Paul and Timothy to Philemon, Verse 11, 12
.—When these two last Letters were written, Mark and Aristarchus (a Prisoner,
Colos. iv. 10) were with Paul. But in the Letter to Philemon, Aristarchus is not said
to be ...

PHILEMON 17.2.1. In Relation to Colossians Although we have been following
the canonical order of the letters attributed to Paul, the close relationship
between Colossians and Philemon makes it appropriate to discuss them together
. That close relationship is indicated in a number of ways. First, the same ... Other
names common to the two letters are Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke (Phlm
24; Col 4:10, 14). Such a congruence of names of companions of Paul at the time

There is a considerable overlap in the names mentioned in each letter. In prison
with Paul, according to Philemon, is Epaphras, his "fellow prisoner," and Mark,
Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke (w. 23-24). Paul is sending the slave Onesimus
back to his owner, Philemon (v. 10). In the assembly that meets in Philemon's
household, Paul greets his "sister" Apphia and his "fellow soldier" Archippus (v. 2
). In Colossians we meet the some of the same cast, plus others. Paul says he is

24And so do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas and Luke, my fellow workers. 25The
grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. As we noted above (see the
introduction to vv. 8-20), the line between the body of Philemon and its closing is
hard to draw.1 Paul uses several standard features in his letter closings, but he
also varies them considerably, making it inappropriate to speak of a hard-and-
fast “form.”2 The TNIV suggests, by its spacing, that the closing begins with the
greetings in v.

The letter presents itself as being written to a single individual, Philemon, to
address a particular set of concerns relating to another individual, Onesimus, and
his relationship with Philemon. For such a short letter, it contains a remarkable
number of references to specific individuals; indeed, the density of proper names
is among the highest in the Pauline corpus. The letter mentions (in addition to
Jesus) Timothy, Philemon, Apphia, Archippus, Onesimus, Epaphras, Mark,
Aristarchus, ...

We will say more about Philippians under the introduction to that letter; we want
to focus on the other three epistles here. In both Ephesians 6:21–22 and
Colossians 4:7–8, Paul names Tychicus as the “mailman” or letter carrier. In both
Colossians 4:10–14 and Philemon 23, Paul lists the same five companions who
send greetings—Epaphras, Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke. This suggests
that Paul sent all three letters at the same time. Philemon was apparently a
member of the ...

In Col 4:10 the term synaichmalotos, fellow prisoner,” is used of Aristarchus, who
is mentioned by Luke in Acts 27:2 as traveling with the prisoner Paul to Rome.
The term is given here to Epaphras, who may not have been a “fellow prisoner” of
Paul in the same sense, as Stuhlmacher (Brief an Philemon, 55) prefers to
understand it. The term may be employed only in a figurative sense here,
meaning that both Paul and Epaphras are prisoners of Christ; cf. 2 Cor 2:14 (“

Although Timothy is named as cosender or coauthor of the letter, Paul writes
consistently in the first person singular, and the letter has the flavor of being
written directly by Paul to Philemon. Apphia and Archippus are named in the
address but, again, Paul apparently speaks primarily to Philemon, as the singular
pronouns and direct address elsewhere suggest. Later the letter refers to Paul's
fellow prisoner Epaphras and to fellow workers Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and
Luke (w. 23- 24) ...
