Colossians 4:15 Meaning and Commentary

Colossians 4:15

Salute the brethren which are in Laodicea
Where there was a church mentioned in the following verse, of which see on Gill "Re 2:10".

And Nymphas;
which some, unskilful in the Greek language, have took for a woman; whereas it is the name of a man, as the following words show; and is a contraction of Nymphios, or Nymphidios, or Nymphodoros:

and the church which is in his house.
This man seems to have been an inhabitant of Laodicea, and that the church there met at his house to worship God, to pray unto him, sing his praise, hear his word, and attend on all ordinances: or his own family was brought up so strictly to the observance of these things, that they looked like a little church of themselves.
