What does Romans 16:15 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑]

Paul comes to the end of his list of people he wants his readers to greet for him in Rome. Those mentioned in this verse may have belonged to yet another house church. Apparently, the church in Rome consisted of several smaller groups that met in individual homes. Perhaps Paul's letter would be read aloud in each group and then passed around.

This group likely includes another husband-and-wife pairing in Philologus and Julia, since they are mentioned together. Paul offers greetings to Nereus and his sister, as well as to Olympas. Perhaps he didn't know the names of any of the others who met in this home.
