kris´pus ( Κρίσπος , Krı́spos , "curled"): One of the small number baptized by Paul among the Corinthian Christians (1 Corinthians 1:14 ). He had been ruler of the Jewish synagogue, but he "believed in the Lord with all his house"; and, following Paul, withdrew from the synagogue (Acts 18:7 , Acts 18:8 ). He seems to have been succeeded by Sosthenes (Acts 18:17 ). According to tradition he became bishop of Aegina.
