Fellow-labourer with Paul at Rome, Colossians 4:14; Philippians 24; of whom Paul had to write some five years later, "Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed to Thessalonica." 2 Timothy 4:10 . This may signify, not that he had apostatised, but that he had fallen from Paul's line of things through love of this present age.
