Bible Names A-G: Epaenetus
Epaenetus in Easton's Bible Dictionary
commendable, a Christian at Rome to whom Paul sent his
salutation (Rom. 16:5). He is spoken of as "the first
Achaia" (R.V., "of Asia", i.e., of proconsular Asia,
probably the correct reading). As being the first
that region, he was peculiarly dear to the apostle. He
his "well beloved."
Epaenetus in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
A Christian at Rome greeted by Paul as "my well beloved, who
is the firstfruits of Achaia (Asia in the Alexandrinus,
Vaticanus, and Sinaiticus manuscripts) unto Christ" (Romans
16:5). "Asia" is used in the restricted sense, Mysia, Lydia,
Epaenetus in Smiths Bible Dictionary
(praiseworthy), a Christian at Rome, greeted by St. Paul in
Ro 16:5 and designated as his beloved and the first-fruit of
Asia unto Christ.
Epaenetus in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
ep-e'-ne-tus (Epainetos, "praised"): One of the Christians at
Rome to whom greetings are sent by Paul (Rom 16:5). All that
is known of him is told here. Paul describes him as (1) "my
beloved," (2) "who is the firstfruits of Asia unto Christ."
Textus Receptus of the New Testament has "firstfruits of
Achaia" but this wrong reading is due to 1 Cor 16:15. He was
one of the first Christians in the Roman province of Asia.
This salutation brings up the question of the destination of
Rom 16:3-16, for it is argued that they are addressed to the
church in Ephesus owing to the fact that Prisca and Aquila and
Epenetus are known to have dwelt in Asia. On the other hand,
there are more than 20 others in this list who are not known
to have spent any time in Asia. Prisca and Aquila had once
dwelt in Rome (Acts 18:2), and there is nothing unusual in an
Ephesian dwelling in the capital of the empire. An interesting
discovery was made in Rome of an inscription in which was the
name of Epenetus, an Ephesian.
