Smith's Bible Dictionary
Onesiphorus

(bringing profit) is named twice only in the New Testament, viz. (2 Timothy 1:16-18) and 2 Timothy 4:19 Paul mentions him in terms of grateful love as having a noble courage and generosity in his behalf, amid his trials as a prisoner at Rome, when others from whom he expected better things had deserted him. (2 Timothy 4:16) Probably other members of the family were also active Christians. (2 Timothy 4:19) It is evident from (2 Timothy 1:18) that Onesiphorus had his home at Ephesus. (A.D. 64.)
