Bible Names A-G: Erastus


Erastus in Easton's Bible Dictionary beloved. (1.) The "chamberlain" of the city of Corinth (Rom. 16:23), and one of Paul's disciples. As treasurer of such a city he was a public officer of great dignity, and his conversion to the gospel was accordingly a proof of the wonderful success of the apostle's labours. (2.) A companion of Paul at Ephesus, who was sent by him along with Timothy into Macedonia (Acts 19:22). Corinth was his usual place of abode (2 Tim. 4:20); but probably he may have been the same as the preceding.

Erastus in Fausset's Bible Dictionary "Chamberlain," i.e. city steward and treasurer of Corinth (Romans 16:23). The conversion of so prominent a man marks the great success of Paul's labors there. He ministered to Paul, accompanying him on his last journey to his second imprisonment at Rome; but "abode at Corinth," going no further, as Paul notes (2 Timothy 4:20) to depict his utter desertion by man. Erastus the missionary is perhaps distinct, as a chamberlain's office would hardly admit of continued missionary journeys (Acts 19:22).

Erastus in Naves Topical Bible 1. A friend of Paul Ac 19:22; 2Ti 4:20 -2. Convert of Paul's, probably same as preceding Ro 16:23

Erastus in Smiths Bible Dictionary (beloved). 1. One of the attendants of St. Paul at Ephesus, who with Timothy was sent forward into Macedonia. Ac 19:22 (A.D. 51.) He is probably the same with Erastus who is again mentioned in the salutations to Timothy. 2Ti 4:20 2. Erastus the chamberlain, or rather the public treasurer, of Corinth, who was one of the early converts to Christianity. Ro 16:23 According to the traditions of the Greek Church, he was first treasurer to the church at Jerusalem, and afterwards bishop of Paneas.

Erastus in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE e-ras'-tus (Erastos, "beloved"): The name occurs three times, each time denoting a companion of Paul. (1) Erastus was sent with Timothy from Ephesus into Macedonia while Paul remained in Asia for a while. They are designated "two of them that ministered unto him" (Acts 19:22). (2) "Erastus the treasurer of the city" sent greetings to the Christians in Rome (Rom 16:23). He was apparently an important person in the Corinthian community, and with Gaius probably represented that church in these fraternal relations with the Roman community. (3) Erastus is one who, in 2 Tim 4:20, "remained at Corinth." We have no means of discovering whether one or more than one person is meant in these references. A. C. Headlam (HDB, under the word) thinks it improbable that one who held an office implying residence in one locality should have been one of Paul's companions in travel. On the other hand Paul may be designating Erastus (Rom 16:23) by an office he once held, but which he gave up to engage in mission work. S. F. Hunter

Erastus of Corinth in Wikipedia According to the Epistle to the Romans, Erastus was Corinth's οἰκονόμος (oikonomos),[1] a position of high status. The word is generally translated as "steward" or, in this context, "treasurer";[2] KJV uses the translation "chamberlain", NIV uses "director of public works". An Erastus is also mentioned in the Second Epistle to Timothy and Acts. It is not certain if these verses all refer to the one person...
