DEMAS (= Demetrius?). A companion of St. Paul in his first Roman imprisonment ( Colossians 4:14 , Philippians 1:24 ). There is some indication (cf. Philippians 2:20 f.) that even then Demas was not altogether trusted; and later he forsook the Apostle, ‘having loved this present world’ ( 2 Timothy 4:10 ). He was apparently a native of Thessalonica.
