Tychicus

Additional Links

Among the church representatives who went with Paul to present a gift to the Jerusalem church were two men from the province of Asia, Tychicus and Trophimus (Acts 20:4; Acts 21:29). When Paul was later imprisoned for two years in Rome, Tychicus spent some time with him. Paul then sent him as his special representative to the churches of Ephesus and Colossae, to tell the Christians how he was faring in Rome. Tychicus probably also carried Paul’s letters to the Ephesians and the Colossians (Ephesians 6:21-22; Colossians 4:7-8).

Tychicus continued to work with Paul after Paul’s release from imprisonment. Paul considered sending him to relieve Titus in Crete (Titus 3:12), and later he sent him to relieve Timothy in Ephesus (2 Timothy 4:12).
