Apparently a faithful minister, cooperating with Paul, Tit 3:12, who thought him worthy to take the place of Titus at Crete, while the latter spent the winter with the apostle at Nicopolis.
Paul's companion (Tit 3:12), whom he proposed sending to Titus at Crete. In tradition, bishop of Lystra.
A trusted companion of St. Paul, in the later part of his life (Tit 3:12). There is no evidence for the statements of Dorotheus (Bibl. Maxima, Lugd. 1677, iii. p. 429) that he had been one of the 70 disciples, and was afterwards bishop of Lystra.
(gift of Artemis), a companion of St. Paul.
According to tradition he was bishop of Lystra.
ARTEMAS, St. Paul's disciple, who was sent by that Apostle into Crete, in the room of Titus, Tit 3:12, while he continued with St. Paul at Nicopolis, where he passed the winter. We know nothing particular of the life or death of Artemas; but the employment to which he was appointed by the Apostle is a proof of his great merit.
