All the Men of the Bible

Duration: 365 days

Rufus [Ro̅o̅’fus]—red.

  1. A son of Simon the Cyrenian who was compelled to bear the Cross (Mark 15:21).
  2. A believer in Rome greeted by Paul as “the chosen in the Lord” together with “his mother and mine” (Rom. 16:13). Some writers feel that these two may have been the same persons. “Simon’s widow might have emigrated to Rome with her two sons, where they became people of eminence in the Church, and that this is the reason why the brothers are mentioned by Mark (15:21), who probably wrote in Rome” (Hastings Dictionary).
