Philippians 2:25 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Epaphroditus, my brother, etc - Here is a very high character of this minister of Christ; he was,
1. A brother - one of the Christian family; a thorough convert to God, without which he could not have been a preacher of the Gospel.
2. He was a companion in labor; he labored, and labored in union with the apostle in this great work.
3. He was a fellow soldier; the work was a work of difficulty and danger, they were obliged to maintain a continual warfare, fighting against the world, the devil, and the flesh.

5. He was an affectionate friend to the apostle; knew his soul in adversity, acknowledged him in prison, and contributed to his comfort and support.
