Book of Saints – Epaphras


EPAPHRAS (Saint) Bishop, Martyr (July 19) (1st century) “The most beloved fellow-servant” of Saint Paul (Colossians 1:7). He is traditionally said to have been Bishop of Colosse and to have suffered there for Christ. But beyond what we read of him in Scripture (Colossians 1:7; 4:12; Philemon 23) we know nothing of his life.
