Ru´fus. A person of this name was one of the sons of Simon the Cyrenian, who was compelled to bear the cross of Christ (): he is supposed to be the same with the Rufus to whom Paul, in writing to the Romans, sends his greeting in the remarkable words, 'Salute Rufus, chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine' (). He is said to have been one of the seventy disciples, and eventually to have had charge of the church at Thebes.
