ARCHIPPUS ( Philippians 1:2 , Colossians 4:17 ) was evidently a member of the household of Philemon of Colossæ, probably his son. He shared his spirit, since St. Paul, referring doubtless to his aid in missionary operations in those parts, styles him ‘our fellow-soldier.’ He had been entrusted with some important office in the Church, whether at Colossæ, or, as Lightfoot, in view of the preceding context, more probably supposes, at the neighbouring town of Laodicea; and, considering the spiritual atmosphere of the place ( Revelation 3:14-19 ), one is not surprised that the Apostle should have thought it needful to exhort him to zeal in his ministry.
