Jesus Justus. Co-worker with Paul (Col 4:11), named as joining in the sending of greetings to the Colossian church. “Jesus who is called Justus” is mentioned with Aristarchus and Mark as being “the only men of the circumcision among my fellow workers for the kingdom of God.” The remark indicates that during Paul’s first Rom. imprisonment, almost all of the Jewish Christians at Rome failed to cooperate with Paul in the work of the Gospel. These three Jewish co-workers had “been a comfort” to Paul. Nothing further is known of this appreciated associate of Paul.
