Graecized from Joshua. The Thessalonian who received Paul and Silas (Acts 17:5-7; Acts 17:9), whom the mob therefore, after assaulting his house, dragged before the magistrates. Jason had to give security before he was let go. In Romans 16:21 Paul sends Jason's salutations from Corinth, calling him his "kinsman" or fellow tribesman, or fellow countryman, as the word is used Romans 9:3.
