Demas (dç'mas). Probably contracted from Demetrius. A companion of Paul during his first imprisonment at Rome. Colossians 4:14; Philem. 24. The mournful note is subsequently made that he had forsaken the apostle, "having loved this present world." 2 Timothy 4:10. Whether this meant actual apostasy we know not.
