Demitrius

 

Pronunciation:  dih-MEE-tree-uhs

Occurrences:  3

First Reference:  Yeshua 10:59

 

But a certain Greek whose name was Demitrius, an artisan of great renown, came unto Yeshua and begged that he sup with him, and going in unto his house he sat down to eat.



Summary:  Demitrius was a famous artisan from Hippos who invited Yeshua to his house for dinner. Believing that Yeshua was sent from God, Demitrius asked Yeshua what he might do to draw closer to God. Yeshua responded by encouraging Demitrius to set all his slaves free, which he agreed to do (Y:10:59-83).
 


Azrael’s Commentary - Demitrius


A wealthy artisan in fine exquisite silverware, and a prominent citizen of Hippos, Demitrius became one of Yeshua’s most devout disciples and was a witness to the post-resurrectional teachings of Yeshua. He continued to live in Hippos long after Yeshua’s ministry was completed, and helped greatly in financing the missionary efforts of the apostles, especially those of Jude.
 

Demitrius appointed himself the guardian to the household of Mary and Susanna, and at his own expense he had the house of Mary and Susanna completely refurbished and appointed. During the Jewish uprising of 68-70 CE, he tried to persuade Mary and Susanna to take refuge in Hippos, but both women kindly refused the offer; preferring to stay in Nazareth among friends and family. Still fearful for their welfare, Demitrius paid to have the house discreetly watched over by Roman legionnaires who were told that Mary and Susanna were friends of Rome; and that Susanna was none other than the widowed wife of Marcus Quintus the former Prefect of Jotapata. Demitrius died in 77 CE, and according to Greek custom his body was cremated.
