Timothy and Erastus were sent to Macedonia by Paul in Acts 19:21-22. We are familiar with Timothy, but who was Erastus? What title or position did he have according to Romans 16:23? What other reference to him can you find in the New Testament?
Answer: Erastus was a Corinthian who converted to Christianity and assisted Paul in his missionary work. Paul sent he and Timothy to Macedonia (Acts 19:21-22). Erastus was a treasurer for the city (of Corinth) according to Romans 16:23 and there is one other New Testament reference to him in II Timothy 4:20.
