Philippians 4:22 (King James Version)
All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar's household.
- Romans 16:16 ; 2 Corinthians 13:13 ; Hebrews 13:24 ; 1 Peter 5:13 ; 3 John 1:14
- The cruel, worthless, and diabolical Nero was at this time emperor of Rome; but it is not improbable that the empress Poppaea was favourably inclined to Christianity, as Josephus relates that ([theosebes
gar en ]) "she was a worshipper of the true God
- " Jerome states, (in Phm) that St. Paul had converted many in Caesar's family; for "being by the emperor cast into prison, he became more known to his family, and turned the house of Christ's persecutor into a church."
