Who is Erastus?
        (beloved). 1. One of Paul's attendants, whom he sent with Timothy into Macedonia, Acts 19:22, and whom he salutes in his letter to Timothy. 2 Tim 4:20. 2. The "chamberlain" or treasurer of Corinth, and one of Paul's converts. Rom 16:23. Some identify him with the preceding, but upon insufficient grounds; for in this case we should expect the mention of his office in the Acts and in Timothy, as in Romans -- unless, indeed, he received the office after his conversion, which is very unlikely.
