Who is Sosthenes?
        (safe in strength), a ruler of the Jewish synagogue at Corinth. He was seized and beaten in that city by a party of Greeks, who were thus excited to acts of violence by what they thought the unjustifiable and malicious persecution of Paul. Acts 18:17. It is thought that he afterward became a convert to the Christian faith. 1 Cor 1:1-2.
