Stephanas

Stephanas (Stef´uh-nuhs)

Head of a household whose members were Paul’s first converts in Corinth (1Cor 16:15; 1Cor 1:16). When trouble broke out in the Corinthian church he accompanied Fortunatus and Achaicus on a visit to Paul in Ephesus with information about the problems (1Cor 16:17-18). Some of these problems were also detailed by a letter (1Cor 7:1), which may have been carried back to the church by the trio. Stephanas is strongly commended by Paul as one worthy of exercising authority in the church (1Cor 16:16).
