(e paf' roh di' tuhss) Personal name meaning, “favored by Aphrodite or Venus.” A friend and fellow worker of Paul and the apostle (Philippians 2:25 ). He had delivered to Paul a gift from the church at Philippi while the apostle was in prison. While he was with Paul, Epaphroditus became seriously ill. After his recovery, Paul sent him back to Philippi, urging the church there to receive him “with all gladness” (Philippians 2:29 ). The name Epaphroditus was common in the first century Greek-speaking world.
