Justus II of Jerusalem

Justus II of Jerusalem was a 2nd-century Jewish Christian bishop of Jerusalem.[1]

According to Eusebius of Caesarea, there were thirteen bishops of Jerusalem, all Jewish Christians.[2] and he was 11th on that list. Exact dates are not given by Eusebius, for his bishopric.

Justus is also mentioned in the apocryphal Letter of James to Quadratus,[3] and Epiphanius of Salamis.[4]

Some scholars[5] have suggested that he was not a bishop but rather a presbyter assisting James the first Bishop,[6] though this is controversial.
