  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Agabus 
  a  "prophet,"  probably  one  of  the  seventy  disciples  of  Christ.  He 
  prophesied  at  Antioch  of  an  approaching  famine  (Acts  11:27,  28). 
  Many  years  afterwards  he  met  Paul  at  Caesarea,  and  warned  him  of 
  the  bonds  and  affliction  that  awaited  him  at  Jerusalem  should  he 
  persist  in  going  thither  (Acts  21:10-12).
