St. Erastus - A New Testament Saint - July 26

Paul Preaching and Converting Many - Like Erastus - to Christianity

St. Erastus in the Bible

Then he (Paul) sent to Macedonia two of his assistants, Timothy and Erastus, while he himself stayed for a while in the province of Asia.

Gaius, who is host to me (Paul) and to the whole church, greets you. Erastus, the city treasurer, and our brother Quartus greet you.

Erastus remained in Corinth, while I (Paul) left Trophimus sick at Miletus.
