Tertius

TERTIUS . St. Paul’s amanuensis who wrote Romans and added a personal salutation ( Romans 16:22 ). It was the Apostle’s custom to employ a scribe (no doubt dictating shorthand notes, a common practice), but to add a short autograph himself. The autographs probably are: Romans 16:25-27 , 1 Corinthians 16:21-24 (expressly), 2 Corinthians 13:13 f., Galatians 6:11-18 (expressly), Ephesians 6:23 f., Philippians 4:21-23 , Colossians 4:18 (expressly), 1 Thessalonians 5:25-28 , 2 Thessalonians 3:17 f., (expressly). In the Pastoral Epistles and Philemon, which are personal letters, the presence of autograph passages is more uncertain.

A. J. Maclean.
