Justus This surname is given to three people in NT. 1. Joseph Barsabbas (  Acts 1:23 ). 2. Titus or Titius, host of St. Paul at Corinth (  Acts 18:7 RV [Note: Revised Version.]; the MSS vary between these two forms, and some omit the first name altogether), apparently a Roman citizen who was a ‘proselyte of the gate’ (as he would later have been called), and converted to Christianity by the Apostle (Ramsay, St. Paul the Trav . p. 256). 3. A Jew named Jesus or Joshua who was with St. Paul in his first Roman imprisonment (  Colossians 4:11 ).

    jus´tus ( Ἰοῦστος , Ioústos ): There are three of this name mentioned in the New Testament.

    (1) It was the Roman surname of Joseph Barsabbas (which see) ( Acts 1:23 ).

    (2) A C orinthian proselyte ( sebómenos tón Theón ), whose house adjoined the synagogue and who received Paul when the Jews opposed him (  Acts 18:7 ). He was probably a Roman citizen, one of the colonies, and so he would be of assistance to the apostle in his work among the better class of Corinth. There is some disagreement among manuscripts regarding the name. Textus Receptus of the New Testament gives "Justus" alone. the Revised Version (British and American) following Codex Sinaiticus, Codex E, Vulgate, Bohairic, Armenian, gives "Titus Justus"; Westcott and Hort, The New Testament in Greek, Tischendorf, Codex Vaticanus, Codex Bezae, give "Titius Justus"; Cheyne ( EB , under the word "Justus") thinks these forms a corruption of "Tertius Justus," and that the bearer of the name was the "Tertius" of  Romans 16:22 . Paul still continued his lodgings with Aquila and Priscilla, but made the house of Justus his own synagogue.

    (3) A J ew, Jesus Justus, mentioned with Mark and Aristarchus by Paul in his letters to the Colossians ( Colossians 4:11 ), is a fellow-worker and one that had been a comfort unto him.

    archbishop of Canterbury, accompanied Laurentius and Mellitus when they departed from Rome, in 601, to join the mission at Canterbury. He was a Roman by birth; was also first bishop of the see of Rochester. He was translated to Canterbury in 624. The great event of his short occupancy of the latter see was the extension of the Kentish mission to Northumbria. This was effected by the marriage of Edwin, the king of Northumbria, with Ethelburga, the sister of Eadbald, king of Kent. Justus consecrated Paulinus, July 21, 625, to be archbishop of York. He died November 10, 627. See Hook, Lives of the Archbishops of Canterbury, 1:100 sq.
