2 Timothy 4:21 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Come before winter -
1. Because the apostle's time was short and uncertain.
2. Because sailing in those seas was very dangerous in winter. Whether Timothy saw the apostle before he was martyred is not known.
Eubulus - This person is nowhere else mentioned in the New Testament.
Pudens - Of this person we have traditions and legends, but nothing certain. The Catholics make him bishop of Rome.
Linus - He also is made, by the same persons, bishop of Rome; but there is no sufficient ground for these pretensions.

All the brethren - All the Christians, of whom there were many at Rome; though of Paul's companions in travel, only Luke remained there.

Do your best to come to me quickly,
As soon as I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, do your best to come to me at Nicopolis, because I have decided to winter there.
