honouring, one of the seven deacons at Jerusalem ( Acts 6:5 ). Nothing further is known of him.
one of the seven, commonly called "deacons." ( Acts 6:1-6 ) He was probably a Hellenist. (A.D. 34.)
One of "the seven" chosen to relieve the apostles by attending to "the daily ministration" to the poor of the Christian community in Jerusalem (Acts 6:5). The name is Greek, but as Nicolaus is distinguished from the remaining six as a proselyte, Timon and the others were probably Jews by birth.
