Phoebe (Greek: Φοίβη) was a deaconess at the Christian church of Cenchrea. Paul tasked her with delivering his letter to the Romans. In his letter, Paul introduced and commended her to the Christians of Rome and asked the Christians of Rome to assist her. She helped many, including Paul.
Now I introduce and commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deaconess (servant) of the church at Cenchrea, that you may receive her in the Lord [with love and hospitality], as God’s people ought to receive one another. And that you may help her in whatever matter she may require assistance from you, for she has been a helper of many, including myself.— Romans 16:1–16:2 (AMP)
