  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Cornelius 
  a  centurion  whose  history  is  narrated  in  Acts  10.  He  was  a 
  "devout  man,"  and  like  the  centurion  of  Capernaum,  believed  in 
  the  God  of  Israel.  His  residence  at  Caesrea  probably  brought  him 
  into  contact  with  Jews  who  communicated  to  him  their 
  expectations  regarding  the  Messiah;  and  thus  he  was  prepared  to 
  welcome  the  message  Peter  brought  him  He  became  the  first  fruit 
  of  the  Gentile  world  to  Christ.  He  and  his  family  were  baptized 
  and  admitted  into  the  Christian  church  (Acts  10:1,  44-48).  (See  {CENTURION}.)
