  Gaius 
  (1.)  A  Macedonian,  Paul's  fellow-traveller,  and  his  host  at 
  Corinth  when  he  wrote  his  Epistle  to  the  Romans  (16:23).  He  with 
  his  household  were  baptized  by  Paul  (1  Cor.  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).

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