A distinguished Christian minister of Greek origin, Galatians 2:3 ; converted under the preaching of Paul, Titus 1:4 , whose companion and fellow-labor he became, 2 Corinthians 8:23 . He joined Paul and Barnabas in the mission from Antioch to Jerusalem, Acts 15:2 Galatians 2:1 ; and subsequently was sent to Corinth and labored with success, 2 Corinthians 8:6 12:18 . He did not rejoin the apostle at Troas, as was expected, but at Philippi, 2 Corinthians 2:12,13 7:6 ; and soon after resumed his labors at Corinth in connection with a general effort for the relief of poor Christians in Judea, taking with him Paul's second epistle, 2 Corinthians 8:6,16,17 .

Some eight or ten years later, we find him left by the apostle at Crete, to establish and regulate the churches of that island, Titus 1:5 . Here he received the Epistle to Titus from Paul, then at Ephesus, inviting him to Nicopolis, Titus 3:12 ; whence he went into the neighboring Dalmatia, before Paul was finally imprisoned at Rome, 2 Timothy 4:10 . Tradition makes him labor for many years in Crete, and die there at an advanced age. His character seems to have been marked by integrity, discretion, and a glowing zeal. He was trusted and beloved by Paul, whose epistle to him is similar in its contents to the first epistle to Timothy, and was probably written not long after it, A. D. 65.
