Demetrius [Dēmē'trĭŭs]—belonging to demeter. Demeter was the goddess of agriculture and rural life.

  1. The silversmith at Ephesus who made silver models of the celebrated Temple of Diana, and who opposed Paul and incited the mob against him (Acts 19:24, 38).
  2. A believer, well-commended by the Apostle John (3 John 12). This man of God had the testimony of all men of the truth and of John also. It is one of the finest recommendations of the Gospel when a Christian impresses and attracts those around him by the reality of his or her life.
