Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lucius of Cyrene was, according to the Book of Acts, one of the founders of the Christian Church in Antioch, then part of Roman Syria. He is mentioned by name as a member of the church there, after King Herod's Death: Now there were in the church at Antioch prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Symeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen who was a close friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. . Lucius is indicated as a founder by an inference in an earlier passage Now those who had been scattered by the persecution that arose because of Stephen went as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus and Antioch, preaching the word to no one but Jews. There were some Cypriots and Cyrenians, among them, however, who came to Antioch and began to speak to the Greeks as well, proclaiming the Lord Jesus. He was supposed to have been the first bishop of Cyrene. There is a Lucius mentioned also in Romans 16:21, but there is no way of knowing if this is the same person.show more
