Bible Names A-G: Diotrephes





Diotrephes in Easton's Bible Dictionary Jove-nourished, rebuked by John for his pride (3 John 1:9). He was a Judaizer, prating against John and his fellow- labourers "with malicious words" (7).

Diotrephes in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 3 John 1:9, loving to have the preeminence" through ambition. A Judaizer, who opposed the missionaries when preaching grace to the Gentiles, see 3 John 1:7. He "prated against" John and the orthodox "with malicious words"; he "received not" John, by not receiving with love the brethren whom John recommended (Matthew 10:40). His influence was so great that he "cast out" of the church such as were disposed to receive them. But Neander thinks that the missionaries were Christian Jews who "took nothing of the Gentiles" (3 John 1:7), in contrast to the Jews who elsewhere abused ministers' right of maintenance (2 Corinthians 11:22; Philemon 3:2; Philemon 3:5; Philemon 3:19); and that Diotrephes stood at the head of an ultra-Pauline party of anti-Jewish tendency, forerunners of Marcion. This accounts for Diotrephes' domineering opposition to the missionaries and to John, whose love combined with truth sought to harmonize the various elements in the Asiatic churches. Demetrius is praised as of the opposite spirit to Diotrephes; as the former was to be followed, so the latter to be shunned (3 John 1:11-12). Perhaps Diotrephes as the local bishop simply resented the interference of John's apostolic legates as an infringement of his personal rights. For whereas in the 2nd Epistle of John corruption of doctrine is spoken of as disqualifying one from the hospitality of the church, in this 3rd Epistle no hint is given of erroneous doctrine; but only of Diotrephes' "love of preeminence." Diotrephes and the presbyters influenced by him (whether as their bishop or not) treated the apostle's messengers as persons claiming an authority derogatory to his own. But John (3 John 1:10) uses language implying his own unquestionable power of restraining Diotrephes's "prating" opposition: such as none but an apostle could properly have employed, an indirect confirmation of the Johannine authorship of the epistle.

Diotrephes in Smiths Bible Dictionary (nourished by Jove), a Christian mentioned in 3Jo 1:9 but of whom nothing is known.

Diotrephes in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE di-ot'-re-fez (Diotrephes): A person mentioned in 3 Jn 1:9,10 as contentiously resisting the writer's authority and forbidding others from exercising the Christian hospitality which he himself refused to show. The words "who loveth to have the preeminence, among them" may indicate that he was a church official, abusing his position.chief stars in the constellation of the Twins. Some 4,000 years BC they served as pointers to mark the beginning of the new year by setting together with the first new moon of springtime. The constellation of the Twins was supposed to be especially favorable to sailors, hence, ships were often placed under the protection of the twin gods.

Diotrephes in Wikipedia was a man mentioned in the (3 John, verses 911). His name means "fed by Jupiter". As Raymond E. Brown comments, "Diotrephes is not a particularly common name."[1] In addition to being ambitious, proud, disrespectful of apostolic authority, rebellious, and inhospitable, the author of the letter says that Diotrephes tried to hinder those desiring to show hospitality to the brothers and to expel these from the congregation. Not even the location of Diotrephes' church can be determined from the letter. It is debatable whether the antipathy expressed in 3 John is based on "a theological dispute, a clash of competing eccesiastical authorities,a disagreement about financial responsibilities for the mission, or personal dislike".[2] Adolf von Harnack was of the view that Diotrephes was the first monarchical bishop of whom we have the name. The following is the passage and notes from the New English Translation. 1:9 I wrote something to the church,[4] but Diotrephes,[5] who loves to be first among them, does not acknowledge us.[6] 1:10 Therefore, if I come,[7] I will call attention to the deeds he is doing[8] the bringing of unjustified charges against us with evil words! And not being content with that, he not only refuses to welcome the brothers himself, but hinders the people who want to do so and throws them out of the church! 1:11 Dear friend, do not imitate what is bad but what is good.[9] The one who does good is of God; the one who does what is bad has not seen God.
