The holy, glorious and all-laudable Apostle Zenas (or Zenon) of the Seventy is commemorated by the Church with the Seventy on January 4, and on September 27 together with Ss. Mark and Aristarchus.


[edit] Life

The holy Apostle Zenas was a disciple and co-worker with the Apostle Paul. He was called a lawyer, since he was a learned man and led juridical matters in church courts. He is mentioned in Paul's Epistle to Titus (Titus 3:13): "Help Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their way; see that they lack nothing." Afterwards, St. Zenas became bishop of the city of Diospolis (or Lydda) in Palestine.

[edit] Hymns

Kontakion (Tone 4) [1]

The Church ever sees you as a shining star, O apostle Zenas,
Your miracles have manifested great enlightenment.
Therefore we cry out to Christ:
"Save those who with faith honor Your apostle, O Most Merciful One."

Troparion (Tone 3) [2]

Holy apostle Zenas of the Seventy;
Entreat the merciful;
To grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.
