Greet Amplias, my beloved in the Lord. Romans 16:8

Various texts state “Ampliatus” in place of Amplias. Regardless of the actual spelling of his name, or if Amplias is simply a shortened nickname of Ampliatus, this is the only place in the Bible where he is mentioned, but he is given an especially endearing description by Paul, “my beloved in the Lord.” Four times in this chapter the term “beloved” is used by him.… Read the rest

Greet Andronicus and Junia, my countrymen and my fellow prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me. Romans 16:7

Her name comes from the Hebrew “Mariam” which means “Rebellion” or “Obstinacy.” Rather than being a rebel though, she “labored much for us.” A different source text renders “for you” instead of “for us” and so many modern versions read it this way.… Read the rest

Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Greet my beloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia to Christ. Romans 16:5

After first noting Priscilla and Aquila, Paul takes the time to ask that those who receive his letter to, “Likewise greet the church that is in their house.” If Paul is writing to the saints in Rome, then why would a separate address be made to these two and the church that met in their home?… Read the rest

…who risked their own necks for my life, to whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles. Romans 16:4

Speaking of Priscilla and Aquila, Paul says that they “risked their own necks for my life.” The Greek term is literally rendered, “placed under” their necks.… Read the rest
