Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philemon 1:2

_ _ Apphia — the Latin, “Appia”; either the wife or some close relative of Philemon. She and Archippus, if they had not belonged to his family, would not have been included with Philemon in the address of a letter on a domestic matter.

_ _ Archippus — a minister of the Colossian Church (Colossians 4:17).

_ _ fellow soldier — (2 Timothy 2:3).

_ _ church in thy house — In the absence of a regular church building, the houses of particular saints were used for that purpose. Observe Paul’s tact in associating with Philemon those associated by kindred or Christian brotherhood with his house, and not going beyond it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Philemon 1:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Philemon 1:2

To Apphia — His wife, to whom also the business in part belonged. And the church in thy house — The Christians who meet there.
