Lois, the grandmother of Timothy, not by the side of his father, who was a Greek, but by that of his mother. Hence the Syriac has 'thy mother's mother.' She is commended by St. Paul for her faith (); for although she might not have known that the Christ was come, and that Jesus of Nazareth was He, she yet believed in the Messiah to come, and died in that faith.
