Onesiphorus

Additional Links
(oh neh ssihf' oh ruhss) Personal name meaning, “profit bearing.” Ephesian Christian praised for his effort to seek out the place of Paul's arrest, his disregard of the shame connected with befriending one in chains, and his past service in Ephesus (2 Timothy 1:16-18 ). The greeting of and prayer for the household of Onesiphorus (2 Timothy 1:16; 2 Timothy 4:19 ) has suggested to some that Onesiphorus was already dead. All that can be assumed is that Onesiphorus was not at Ephesus.
