Romans 16

Chapter Sixteen

"Closing Salutations and Challenge"

In this final chapter is shown to us the personal side of Paul. He speaks as one does to friends and not only a leader or pastor.

Paul recommends a sister:

Phebe, our sister, which is a servant of the church at Cenchrea

Paul Salutes those at Rome:

  • Priscilla and Aquila, my helpers in Christ

  • The House Church of Priscilla and Aquila

  • Epaenetus, my well-beloved, the first fruits unto Christ of Achaia

  • Mary, who bestowed much labor on us

  • Adronicus and Junia my kinsmen, and my fellow prisoners, of the apostles, were in Christ before Paul

  • Amplias, my beloved in the Lord

  • Urbane, our helper in Christ

  • Stachys, my beloved

  • Apelles approved in Christ

  • Those in Aristobulus' household

  • Herodian, my kinsman

  • Those of the household of Narcissus, which are in the Lord

  • Tryphena and Tryphosa, labor in the Lord

  • Ro 16:12 Salute Tryphena and Tryphosa, who labour in the Lord.

  • Persis, beloved, which laboured much in the Lord.

  • Rufus chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine.

  • Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermas, Patrobas, Hermes, and the brethren which are with them.

  • Philologus, and Julia, Nereus, and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints which are with them.

Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you. v.16

Paul follows with some pastoral guidance and instruction.

Paul ends with a HALELUJAH.

To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.
