TRYPHENA and TRYPHOSA

Tryphena — From the Greek name Τρυφαινα (Tryphaina), derived from Greek τρυφη (tryphe) meaning "softness, delicacy."

Tryphosa — From the same Greek root word, meaning "delicate or dainty one," alternately, “thrice shining one,” or, more probably, “luxuriant.”

PHOEBE

I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deacon of the church in Cenchreae. I ask you to receive her in the Lord in a way worthy of his people and to give her any help she may need from you, for she has been the benefactor of many people, including me.

Paul, writing to the believers in Rome (Romans 16:1-2)

For most of human history, literature took the form of unwieldy clay tablets and scrolls. The Romans streamlined the medium by creating the codex, a stack of bound pages that is recognized as the earliest incarnation of the book.

SERIES ON WOMEN IN LUKE'S GOSPEL

Isaiah 58:6-7,

"Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
    and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
    and break every yoke?
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
    and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
    and
not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?"
