Justus in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
jus'-tus (Ioustos): There are three of this name mentioned
in the New Testament.
(1) It was the Roman surname of JOSEPH BARSABBAS (which see)
(2) A Corinthian proselyte (sebomenos ton Theon), whose
house adjoined the synagogue and who received Paul when the
Jews opposed him (Acts 18:7). He was probably a Roman
citizen, one of the colonies, and so he would be of

American) following Codex Sinaiticus, Codex E, Vulgate,
Bohairic, Armenian, gives "Titus Justus"; Westcott and Hort,
The New Testament in Greek, Tischendorf, Codex Vaticanus,
Codex Bezae, give "Titius Justus"; Cheyne (EB, under the
word "Justus") thinks these forms a corruption of "Tertius
Justus," and that the bearer of the name was the "Tertius"
of Rom 16:22. Paul still continued his lodgings with Aquila
and Priscilla, but made the house of Justus his own
(3) A Jew, Jesus Justus, mentioned with Mark and Aristarchus
by Paul in his letters to the Colossians (Col 4:11), is a
fellow-worker and one that had been a comfort unto him.
