Barjesus



(Gr. Bariesous).

A false prophet found in the company of the Proconsul Sergius Paulus by St. Paul and Barnabas during their stay at Paphos in Cyprus (Acts 8:6-12). Because of his opposition to the Proconsul's conversion to Christianity, Barjesus was struck blind by St. Paul. He was also called Elymos (Arabic, 'alim, i.e. "wise"), which St. Luke translated by "magician." (Acts 13:8).
