2/12/17 More Faithful Brothers & Sisters To Encourage In Rome

“Tryphena, Tryphosa, and Persis, sisters in our Messiah who are in the employ of the emperor, are also faithful servants of Jesus.   Rufus, brother of Alexander and son of Simon of Cyrene, is a strong Christian and is to be commended for his faithfulness to our Messiah, and also his mother, who has been like a mother to me as well.  Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermas, Patrobas, Hermes, Philologus, Julia, Nereus and his sister, Olympas, and all the brothers and sisters with them, all in the employ of the emperor, are also dear to me and would benefit greatly from your encouragement.  And, of course, encourage each other, showing each other respect and honor as brothers and sisters in our Messiah and greeting each other with the standard kiss on each cheek that marks us as brothers and sisters.  I send greetings and love to you from all the churches.”
