    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Philemon 1:24

    Verse 24. Marcus, Aristarchus, &c.] These were all acquaintances of Philemon, and probably Colossians; and may be all considered as joining here with St.
    Paul in his request for Onesimus. Some think that Marcus was either the evangelist, or John Mark, the nephew of Barnabas, Acts xii. 12, 25. Aristarchus was probably the same with him mentioned Acts xix. 29; xx. 4; xxvii. 2. See Col. iv. 10.

    Demas] Is supposed to be the same who continued in his attachment to Paul till his last imprisonment at Rome; after which he left him for what is supposed to have been the love of the world, 2 Tim. iv. 10; but see the note.

    Lucas] Is supposed to be Luke the evangelist, and author of the Acts of the Apostles. On these suppositions little confidence can be placed: they may be correct; they may be otherwise.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 24. Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas , &c.] Marcus was Barnabas's sister's son, the son of that Mary, in whose house the church met, and prayed for Peter when in prison; whose name was John Mark, whom Saul and Barnabas took along with them to Antioch, and from thence, in their travels, to other parts; but he leaving them at Pamphylia, was the occasion of a contention between Saul and Barnabas afterwards, when returned to Antioch; the latter insisting on his going with them again, and the former refusing it on account of his departure from them; which contention rose so high that they parted upon it, ( Acts 12:12,25 13:5,13 15:37-39) though after this the apostle was reconciled to him; he approving himself to be a faithful and useful minister of the Gospel; and therefore he desires Timothy to bring him along with him, ( 2 Timothy 4:11) and if this epistle was written after that, he was now come to him; however, he was now with him, whether before or after: Aristarchus was a Macedonian of Thessalonica; or very likely the apostle had been the instrument of converting him there, and who followed him from thence, and attended him wherever he went; he was with him in the uproar raised by Demetrius at Ephesus, and accompanied him into Asia; went with him in his voyage to Rome, and was now a fellow prisoner there, ( Acts 19:29 20:4 27:2 Colossians 4:10). Demas is the same with him who is mentioned in ( 2 Timothy 4:10) and if this epistle is later than that, it should seem that he was restored from his fall, and was returned to the apostle. Lucas is the same with Luke the Evangelist, the beloved physician, the brother whose praise was in all the churches, and a constant companion of the apostle, in his travels; and who wrote the book called, The Acts of the Apostles: these the apostle styles, my fellow labourers, being all ministers of the Gospel; and this shows the apostle's great humility, so to call them, when they were far from being on an equal foot with him in office, gifts, or usefulness: and the Christian salutations of these persons are sent to Philemon, with this view, to engage him the more to attend to the apostle's request, in which they all joined.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 23-25 - Never have
    believers found more enjoyment of God, than when sufferin together for him. Grace is the best wish for ourselves and others; with this the apostle begins and ends. All grace is from Christ; he purchased, and he bestows it. What need we more to make us happy, tha to have the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ with our spirit? Let us d that now, which we should do at the last breath. Then men are ready to renounce the world, and to prefer the least portion of grace and fait before a kingdom __________________________________________________________________
