Romans was an Presbyterial letter


  • Cenchrea
  • ‘The Churches of the Gentiles’
  • ‘Arisyobulus’ hosehold’
  • ‘Hosehold of Narcissus’
  • 14 Salute Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermas, Patrobas, Hermes, and the brethren which are with them.
  • ‘15 Salute Philologus, and Julia, Nereus, and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints which are with them.


The above are only a few examples in chapter 16 which shows all the house churches. Some are more definable than the others as I have noted. The few names that are mentioned that I cannot discern from what is stated, I have omitted, but they as well could be local churches.
