Bible Names A-G : Demas


Demas in Wikipedia mentioned by the Apostle Paul in the New Testament of the Bible, appears to have been a man involved in the ministry as a companion of Paul.[1][2] He was with Paul during his first imprisonment in Rome,[3] but later when Paul wrote Second Timothy he said that Demas had forsaken him, "having loved this present world." In The Pilgrim's Progress, John Bunyan writes of Demas, a deceiver, who beckons to pilgrims at the Hill Lucre, urging them to join in the supposed silver mining being carried out there.
