Onesiforo (jina la Kigiriki lenye maana ya "mleta faida") alikuwa mwanamume Mkristo wa karne ya 1 aliyetajwa na Mtume Paulo kwa shukrani katika Waraka wa pili kwa Timotheo 1:16-18.

Sababu ni kwamba alimsaidia sana alipokuwa Efeso, halafu akamfuata hadi Roma mpaka akafaulu kumuona na kumfariji bila kuonea aibu minyororo yake.[1][2][3]

Kwa hiyo Paulo alimtakia huruma ya Mungu pamoja na familia yake.[4]

Inasemekana Onesiforo alipata kuwa askofu wa Kolofon (Asia Ndogo), halafu wa Korintho. Hatimaye alifia dini mjini Parium (karibu na Efeso)[5].

Anaheshimiwa kama mtakatifu. Sikukuu yake huadhimishwa tarehe 6 Septemba[6] au kesho yake[7].

  4. Because Paul speaks of Onesiphorus only in the past tense, wishes blessings upon his house (family), and mercy for him "in that day", some scholars believe that Onesiphorus had at this point died. Towards the end of the same letter, in 2 Timothy 4:19, Paul sends greetings to "Prisca and Aquila, and the house of Onesiphorus", again apparently distinguishing the situation of Onesiphorus from that of the still living Prisca and Aquila. Paul's reference to Onesiphorus, along with 2 Maccabees 12:40-46, is cited by Catholics as one of the early examples of prayer for the dead,{{cite web|url=http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/04653a.htm |title=Toner, Patrick.
