GAIUS . This name is mentioned in five places of NT. One Gaius was St. Paul’s host at Corinth, converted and baptized by him ( Romans 16:23 , 1 Corinthians 1:14 ). He was perhaps the same as ‘Gaius of Derbe’ who accompanied the Apostle from Greece to Asia ( Acts 20:4 ); if so, he would be a native of Derbe, but a dweller at Corinth. The Gaius of Macedonia, St. Paul’s ‘companion in travel’ who was seized in the riot at Ephesus ( Acts 19:29 ), and the Gaius addressed by St. John ( 3 John 1:1 ), were probably different men.

A. J. Maclean.
