For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple. Romans 16:18

“For those who are such” takes us back to the previous verse – “Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.”

These people have motives that are intentionally self-directed and destructive of the church.… Read the rest

Greet one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ greet you. Romans 16:16

Paul has completed his long and meticulous list of those he singled out for personal greetings. Now, in the same thought in order to promote the general good of the congregation, and to continue the warm and deep-seated display of love, he tells them to “Greet one another with a holy kiss.” This was, and still is, the custom in many parts of the world.… Read the rest

Greet Philologus and Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints who are with them. Romans 16:15

Greet Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermas, Patrobas, Hermes, and the brethren who are with them.  Romans 16:14

Five more names are given in today’s verse. Nothing more is known about any of them except a few extra-biblical sources which may or may not be accurate. However, it does note that Paul asks for greetings to them “and the brethren who are with them.” This then could mean that they were leaders of individual home churches or gatherings.… Read the rest
