Archippus

A Christian minister at Colossae, whom Paul calls "our fellow soldier," namely, in the Christian warfare (2 Timothy 2:3). A member of Philemon's family, possibly his son, whence Paul includes him in the same salutation with Philemon and Apphia, and the church in Philemon's house (Philemon 1:2). In both the Epistle to the Colossians (Colossians 4:17) and that to Philemon (which accompanied it) Archippus is mentioned. The Colossians are charged," Say to Archippus, Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfill (make full proof of) it." Probably a self sparing and less zealous spirit betrayed itself in Archippus. Laymen may admonish clergy of their duty, when scriptural faithfulness requires it and they admonish in meekness. Martyred, according to tradition, at Chonse, near Laodicea. Archippus with some reason is supposed to be the angel of Laodicea, whom the Lord, like Paul, reproves (Revelation 3:14-21).
