Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Colossians 4:14

_ _ It is conjectured that Luke “the beloved physician” (the same as the Evangelist), may have first become connected with Paul in professionally attending on him in the sickness under which he labored in Phrygia and Galatia (in which latter place he was detained by sickness), in the early part of that journey wherein Luke first is found in his company (Acts 16:10; compare Note, see on Galatians 4:13). Thus the allusion to his medical profession is appropriate in writing to men of Phrygia. Luke ministered to Paul in his last imprisonment (2 Timothy 4:11).

_ _ Demas — included among his “fellow laborers” (Philemon 1:24), but afterwards a deserter from him through love of this world (2 Timothy 4:10). He alone has here no honorable or descriptive epithet attached to his name. Perhaps, already, his real character was betraying itself.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Colossians 4:7-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Colossians 4:14

Luke, the physician — Such he had been, at least, if he was not then.
