Easton's Bible Dictionary

Gaius:

(1.) A Macedonian, Paul's fellow-traveller, and his host at Corinth when he wrote his Epistle to the Romans (Rom 16:23). He with his household were baptized by Paul (1Cr 1:14). During a heathen outbreak against Paul at Ephesus the mob seized Gaius and Aristarchus because they could not find Paul, and rushed with them into the theatre. Some have identified this Gaius with No. (2).

(2.) A man of Derbe who accompanied Paul into Asia on his last journey to Jerusalem

(3.) A Christain of Asia Minor to whom John addressed his third epistle (3Jo 1:1).

Gaius:

lord; an earthly man

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Gaius:

ga'-yus (Gaios; Westcott and Hort, The New Testament in Greek, Gaios):

(1) The Gaius to whom 3 Joh is addressed. He is spoken of as "the beloved" (3 Joh 1:1,2,5,11), "walking in the truth" (3 Joh 1:3,4), and doing "a faithful work" "toward them that are brethren and strangers withal" (3 Joh 1:5,6). He has been identified by some with the Gaius mentioned in the Apostolical Constitutions (VII, 46), as having been appointed bishop of Pergamum by John.

(2) Gaius of Macedonia, a "companion in travel" of Paul (Ac 19:29). He was one of those who were seized by Demetrius and the other silversmiths in the riot at Ephesus, during Paul's third missionary journey.

(3) Gaius of Derbe, who was among those who accompanied Paul from Greece "as far as Asia," during his third missionary journey (Ac 20:4). In the corresponding list given in the "Contendings of Paul" (compare Budge, Contendings of the Twelve Apostles, II, 592), the name of this Gaius is given as "Gallius."

(4) Gaius, the host of Paul when he wrote the Epistle to the Roman, and who joined in sending his salutations (Ro 16:23). As Paul wrote this epistle from Corinth, it is probable that this Gaius is identical with (5).

(5) Gaius, whom Paul baptized at Corinth (1Co 1:14).

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Gaius:

or Cai'us (lord)-

(1.) A Macedonian who accompanied Paul in his travels, and whose life was in danger from the mob at Ephesus (Acts 19:29). (A.D. 54)

(2.) Of Derbe. He went with Paul from Corinth in his last journey to Jerusalem (Acts 20:4). (A.D. 54)

(3.) Of Corinth, whom Paul baptized and who was his host in his second journey in that city (1 Corinthians 1:14; Romans 16:23). (These are supposed by some to be only one person.)

(4.) John's third epistle is addressed to Christian of this name. We may possibly identify him with No. 2.
