(ahr' chihp puhss) Personal name meaning, “First among horsemen.” A Christian Paul greeted in Colossians 4:17 and Philippians 1:2 , entreating him to fulfill the ministry God gave him. Some have suggested he was the son of Philemon and Appia, but this can be neither proved or disproved. The nature of his ministry has also been widely discussed without firm conclusions. Paul's use of “fellow soldier” to describe him seems to indicate a strong participation in church leadership. Evidently, he preached in the church at Colossae.
