TYCHICUS,

Probably an Ephesian, or of that neighbourhood,
Is mentioned in the following passages,

A. xx. 4. EPH. vi. 21. COL. iv. 7. TIT. iii. 12.
2 TIM. iv. 12.

i. A. xx. 4. Here his name occurs for the first time, in
conjunction with Trophimus also of Asia, as one of the seven
companions of Paul when he departed from Corinth.

ii. COL. iv. 7. The bearer of those Epistles from Rome,
and expressly sent by Paul into Asia, he must have gone to
Colossæ in person, (and to other churches, EPH. vi. 21.) as
an intelligent and affectionate messenger.

In that neighbourhood, when Paul arrived on his Fourth
Progress, Tychicus (and Artemas also) should seem to have
joined the apostle again.

iii. For in TIT. iii. 12. the apostle writes in a way to show,
that Tychicus was then along with him or within his reach :
he would not else speak of sending (from Macedonia) Tychicus
(or Artemas) to relieve Titus in the episcopal government of
Crete. A person so designed must evidently have borne a
high character as a trustworthy and venerable man.

iv. 2 TIM. iv. 12. In agreement with all this, we after-
wards find Tychicus actually sent from Rome to hold that
sacred office in the church of Ephesus, and permanently so:
for though Timothy on his expected return to Rome would
visit that city, he was clearly instructed by Paul not to stay
there.
