TROPHIMUS . A Gentile Christian, a native of Ephesus ( Acts 21:29 ), who, with Tychicus, also of the province Asia ( Acts 20:4 ), and others, accompanied St. Paul to Jerusalem. The Jews, seeing Trophimus with the Apostle in the city, hastily concluded that St. Paul had brought him into the inner court of the Temple, separated from the outer ‘Court of the Gentiles’ by a barrier on which were inscriptions in Greek and Latin forbidding any non-Jew to enter on pain of death. This occasioned the riot which led to St. Paul’s arrest. Some years later Trophimus was left at Miletus sick ( 2 Timothy 4:20 ).
