Euodia
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A Christian woman, one of the members of the church in Philippi (Phil 4:2).Euodia and Syntyche were important in the work of the church there. The two apparently were feuding—Paul entreats them both to “agree in the Lord” (Phil 4:2).Paul asks someone whom he calls “true yokefellow” to help them. This person’s identity and relationship to the women is unknown; it is possible that the word translated “yokefellow” is a proper name (Syzygus).
