Bible Names N-Z: Onesiphorus


Onesiphorus in Easton's Bible Dictionary bringing profit, an Ephesian Christian who showed great kindness to Paul at Rome. He served him in many things, and had oft refreshed him. Paul expresses a warm interest in him and his household (2 Tim. 1:16-18; 4:19).

Onesiphorus in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 2 Timothy 1:16-18; 2 Timothy 4:19; "the Lord give mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus (as Onesiphorus showed mercy), for he oft refreshed me and was not ashamed of my chain (compare Matthew 25:36; Matthew 25:45), but when he was in Rome he sought me out very diligently and found me. The Lord grant unto him that he may find mercy (as he found me) of the Lord in that day; and in how many things he ministered unto me at Ephesus thou knowest very well." "Salute the household of Onesiphorus" (2 Timothy 4:19). Absence from Ephesus probably is the cause of the expression; he had not yet returned from his visit to Rome. If the master were dead the household would not be called after his name. A good man's household shares in his blessing from God as in his deeds for God. Nowhere does Paul use prayers for the dead; Onesiphorus therefore was not dead. "The household of Stephanas" does not exclude "Stephanas" (1 Corinthians 1:16; 1 Corinthians 16:17) so "the household of Onesiphorus" does not necessarily exclude Onesiphorus.

Onesiphorus in Naves Topical Bible -A Christian of Ephesus 2Ti 1:16,17; 4:19
http://www.bible-history.com/naves/O/ONESIPHORUS/


Onesiphorus in Smiths Bible Dictionary (bringing profit) is named twice only in the New Testament, viz. 2Ti 1:16-18 and 2Tim 4:19 Paul mentions him in terms of grateful love as having a noble courage and generosity in his behalf, amid his trials as a prisoner at Rome, when others from whom he expected better things had deserted him. 2Ti 4:16 Probably other members of the family were also active Christians. 2Ti 4:19 It is evident from 2Ti 1:18 that Onesiphorus had his home at Ephesus. (A.D. 64.)

Onesiphorus in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE o-ne-sif'-o-rus (Onesiphoros, literally, "profit bringer" (2 Tim 1:16; 4:19)): 1. The Friend of Paul: Onesiphorus was a friend of the apostle Paul, who mentions him twice when writing to Timothy. In the former of the two passages where his name occurs, his conduct is contrasted with that of Phygellus and Hermogenes and others--all of whom, like Onesiphorus himself, were of the province of Asia--from whom Paul might well have expected to receive sympathy and help. These persons had "turned away" from him. Onesiphorus acted in a different way, for "he oft refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain; but, when he was in Rome, he sought me diligently, and found me." Onesiphorus was one of the Christians of the church in Ephesus; and the second passage, where his name is found, merely sends a message of greeting from Paul, which Timothy in Ephesus is requested to deliver to "the household of Onesiphorus." (the King James Version)...

Onesiphorus in Wikipedia Onesiphorus (name meaning "bringing profit"[1]) was a Christian referred to in the New Testament letter of Second Timothy (2 Tim 1:16-18 and 2 Tim 4:19 ). According to the letter, sent by St. Paul, Onesiphorus sought out Paul who was imprisoned at the time in Rome. The persecution of Christians during Neroís reign made Rome a dangerous city for Christians. Paul praises Onesiphorus for his hospitality, kindness, and courage[2][3]. Onesiphorus is contrasted with the other Christians in Asia who have deserted Paul at this time. Paul sends greeting to the manís household in Ephesus and makes reference to the help he showed Paul earlier in Ephesus. Timothy, who led the Ephesian church is apparently familiar with these acts[4]. Paul's praise of Onesiphorus is significant because it was written shortly before Paul's death as a final encouragement to Timothy[5]. Because Paul speaks of Onesiphorus only in the past tense, wishes present blessings upon his house (family), and mercy for him "in that day", some scholars believe that Onesiphorus had at this point died.[4]. If this view is correct, then we would have evidence of Paul saying a prayer for the dead. Towards the end of the same letter, in 2 Timothy 4:19 , Paul sends greetings to "Prisca and Aquila, and the house of Onesiphorus", again apparently distinguishing the situation of Onesiphorus from that of the still living Prisca and Aquila.
