The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Justus (also known as Joseph or Barsabas Justus) is numbered among the Seventy Apostles. He was a son of Joseph the Betrothed and his first wife Salome, along with the Apostle James the Just, the Apostle Jude, and Simon; he is sometimes known as Joses. He and the Apostle Matthias were selected as candidates to replace Judas Iscariot, but ultimately St. Justus was not chosen. He was Bishop of Eleutheropolis and died a martyr. The Church remembers St. Justus on October 30, and on January 4 among the Seventy.
