From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      For the Athenian comic poet, see Archippus (poet).
Archippus (Greek for "master of the horse") was an early Christian believer
mentioned briefly in the New Testament epistles of Philemon and Colossians.                                                   Archippus
                                                                                                                                 Martyr
Role in the New Testament                                                                                    Born possibly at Colossae or Laodicea

In Paul's letter to Philemon (Philemon 1:2 ), Archippus is named once alongside                              Died   c. 1st century

Philemon and Apphia as a host of the church, and a "fellow soldier." In                                      Feast 20 March (Roman Catholic Church )
Colossians 4:17 (ascribed to Paul), the church is instructed to tell Archippus to                                   19 February (Eastern Orthodox Churches )

"Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfil it."

Role in tradition
According to the 4th century Apostolic Constitutions (7.46), Archippus was the first bishop of Laodicea in Phrygia (now part of
Turkey). Another tradition states that he was one of the 72 disciples appointed by Jesus Christ in Luke 10:1 . The Roman
Catholic Church observes a feast day for Saint Archippus on March 20.
