Nymphas


Nymphas

Nymphas meaning nymph. A man or a woman, depending on accenting of the Greek text, in the New Testament saluted by Paul of Tarsus in his Epistle to the Colossians as a member of the church of Laodicea[disambiguation needed ] (Colossians 4:15). Possibly a contraction of Nymphodorus. The church met in his or her house.
