Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Epaphroditus is a saint of the Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church, first Bishop of Philippi, and of Andriaca in Asia Minor, and first Bishop of Terracina, Italy. There is little evidence that these were all the same man. Epaphroditus was a fellow Christian missionary of St. Paul's and is mentioned only in Philippians 2:25 and 4:18. His name was a pagan one, meaning loved by Aphrodite, or in translation, "charming."The name corresponds to the Latin Venustus, and was very common in the Roman period. "The name occurs very frequently in inscriptions both Greek and Latin, whether at full length Epaphroditus, or in its contracted form Epaphras. Nevertheless, this individual must not be confused with the Epaphras of Col 1:7, 4:12 or Phlm 23.show more
