Bar-Jesus (bär'jç'sus), son of Jesus. A Jewish magician in Crete, who opposed Paul and Barnabas, endeavoring to prevent Sergius Paulus from embracing Christianity, and was struck blind, "not seeing the sun for a season." This affliction, as the Greek achlus implies, was rather an obscuration than a total extinction of sight. He is also called "Elymas" = a magician, a sorcerer. Acts 13:6-12.
