The holy, glorious, all-laudable '''Apostle Agabus''' (also ''Agavos'') was numbered among the [[Apostles#The_Seventy|Seventy Apostles]]. Possessing a prophetic spirit, he prophesied of a world-wide famine which came true during the reign of Caesar Claudius ([[Acts of the Apostles|Acts]] 11:28). He also prophesied to the [[Apostle Paul]] that he would be delivered into the hands of the Gentiles by the Jews in Jerusalem (Acts 21:11). The Apostle Paul mentions him in his epistles.  The Church remembers St. Agabus on [[April 8]].
