a companion and fellow-labourer of Paul during his first imprisonment at Rome (Philemon 1:24; Col. 4:14). It appears, however, that the love of the world afterwards mastered him, and he deserted the apostle (2 Tim. 4:10).
We went to church again yesterday evening, when the bishop preached on the text, "demas hath forsaken me."
Here it occurred to him that he might go in the night to the baker demas and inquire about Ursus.
demas desto, diziendo el Capitan que se queria yr, le traxeron vn presente de 40.
Then demas called out again, saying, "But will you not come over and see?"
The world that was too strong for demas will be too strong for us if we front it in our own strength.
If demas begins with loving the present world, it will not be long before he finds a reason for departing from Paul.
demas, and the wife of Lot, live again in a thousand wretched examples.
By this time By-ends and his companions were come again within sight, and they at the first beck went over to demas.
The last salutation comes from a singularly contrasted couple—Luke and demas, the types respectively of faithfulness and apostasy.
demas, happy man, had a silver mine to draw him aside––a positive silver mine.
