Artemas is mentioned only in Titus 3:12, St. Paul urges Titus to ‘give diligence to come to’ him, ‘when I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus.’ This implies that Artemas was capable of relieving Titus in the oversight and organization of the Church in Crete. Therefore he must have been a Christian of considerable experience and of high character, and free to devote himself to Christian work; one of St. Paul’s companions from whom the ‘apostolic legates’ wore selected. The name is Greek; but that tells nothing about his nationality.

Literature.-articles in Hasting's Dictionary of the Bible (5 vols) on ‘Artemas,’ ‘Titus,’ and ‘Titus, Epistle to’; Expositor’s Greek Testament on Titus 3:12.
