Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine. Romans 16:13

Paul’s words are now directed to a greeting for “Rufus, chosen in the Lord.” The name Rufus means “red.” This implies red hair and it was a common name of the time. But what may make this particular Rufus exceptional is what is found in Mark 15:21 –

“Then they compelled a certain man, Simon a Cyrenian, the father of Alexander and Rufus, as he was coming out of the country and passing by, to bear His cross.”

Simon of Cyrene was compelled to carry the cross of Christ and his two sons are specifically noted by Mark which indicates that they were probably well-known by him at the time he wrote his Gospel.… Read the rest

Greet Tryphena and Tryphosa, who have labored in the Lord. Greet the beloved Persis, who labored much in the Lord. Romans 16:12

Paul has more people to send greetings to in verse 12. Three names are given and, again, speculation is mostly what abounds concerning them as nothing else is noted about them in Scripture.… Read the rest

Greet Herodion, my countryman. Greet those who are of the household of Narcissus who are in the Lord. Romans 16:11

Continuing on with his greetings of so many in Rome, Paul now directs his attention to Herodion stating that he is “my countryman.” This means he is a converted Jew, but possibly even of the same tribe, Benjamin, as Paul was.… Read the rest

Greet Apelles, approved in Christ. Greet those who are of the household of Aristobulus. Romans 16:10

Paul next requests greetings be extended to Apelles. Like many others, this is the only time he is mentioned in Scripture, but what an honor to be singled out of a congregation, recognized by the hand of the great Apostle, and be eternally recorded in God’s superior word!… Read the rest

Greet Urbanus, our fellow worker in Christ, and Stachys, my beloved. Romans 16:9

Paul next takes the time to note a city boy and a country bumpkin. Urbanus means “belonging to the city” or “city-bred”  and Stachys means “ear of grain.” Urbanus was a rather common Roman name and was even the name used by 8 different popes of the Roman Catholic Church.… Read the rest
