Greetings

Romans 16I’m recommending Phoebe to you, she’s a deacon from Cenchreae. Receive and help her.

Priscilla & Aquilla- they risked their lives for me. And, the church meeting in their home, especially Epenctus, the first convert in Asia.

Mary- a hard worker.

Andronicus & Junia- co-prisoners with me, and both Christians before I was.

Ampilatus- a co-worker and dear friend.

Urbanus & Stachys- co-worker, dear friend.

Apelles- standing firm in Christ.

The household of Aristobulus.

Herodion- a fellow Jew.

The household of Narcissus.

Typhena, Tryphosa & Persis- hard-working women and dear friends.

Rufus & his mother- chosen in the Lord.

Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas and the brothers and sisters with them.

Philologus, Julia, Nereus and his sister and all of the Lord’s people with them.

Greet one another with a holy kiss, the churches of Christ salute you.

Watch for those who seek to create division, their teachings are contrary to the Good News you’ve heard. Stay away from them. They don’t serve God; they serve themselves. By their slick words they deceive the naive among them. We’ve all heard about your obedience and we are joy-filled because of it. I just want you to be wise about the good and innocent of evil. God will crush Satan.

Timothy, Lucius, Jason and Josipater send greetings.

I, Tertius the scribe, send my greetings.

Gaius, the hospitable one, sends his greetings. Erastus, the public works director sends his regards, as does our brother Quartus.

Now to God, the establisher of the Good News  (that Jesus Christ is Lord and available through faith alone) to the Gentiles- a news once hidden, but now fully being revealed and made known through the writings as His command), to Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

-Romans 16
