Paul praises Phoebe as highly as he does because the more she appears to be an excellent person in the sight of others, the more she will receive the help owed to her in love. Commentary on Paul’s Epistles.

John Chrysostom

AD 407
There are two reasons why Phoebe should be received by them. First, she has been received by the Lord, and second, she is herself a saint.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
