Aristarchus, my fellow prisoner, greets you, and Mark, the cousin of Barnabas (concerning whom you have received instructions – if he comes to you, welcome him), and Jesus, who is called Justus.  These are the only men of the circumcision among my fellow workers for the kingdom of God, and they have been a comfort to me.  Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ Jesus, greets you, always struggling on your behalf in his prayers that you may stand mature and fully assured in all the will of God.  For I bear him witness that he has worked hard for you and for those in Laodicea and in Hierapolis.  Luke, the beloved physician, greets you, as does Demas.  Give my greetings to the brothers at Laodicea and to Nympha and the church in her house.  And, when this letter has been read among you, have it also read in the church of the Laodiceans and see that you also read the letter from Laodicea.  And say to Archippus, “See that you fulfill the ministry that you have received in the Lord.”  (Colossians 4.10-17)
