Philemon 23-25 King James Version (KJV)
23 There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;
24 Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.
25 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

Philemon 23-25 Good News Translation (GNT)
Final Greetings

23 Epaphras, who is in prison with me for the sake of Christ Jesus, sends you his greetings, 24 and so do my co-workers Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke.
25 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

23 Epaphras was the man God used to start the church of Colosse he was Paul’s cell mate. He may have went to Rome to minister to Paul being arrested also, this making it possible.

24 Mark went on mission trip with Paul but left and then spent time with Barnabas and would later write down the gospel after connecting with Peter. Luke would connect well with Paul, maybe his doctor on call and went with him for this reason but would later write the gospel and Acts. Aristarchus was also a prisoner with Paul, he went with Paul to Rome to collect the money for the church in Jerusalem and they were arrested. Demas was friend of Paul but would later desert him leaving following after Jesus and turning to following his desire for the world.

25 Grace only comes thru Jesus and by no other.
