 Cor·ne·lius /kɔrˈneljəs, ˈneliəs/

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    a centurion whose history is narrated in Acts 10. He was a
    "devout man," and like the centurion of Capernaum, believed in
    the God of Israel. His residence at Caesrea probably brought him
    into contact with Jews who communicated to him their
    expectations regarding the Messiah; and thus he was prepared to
    welcome the message Peter brought him. He became the first fruit
    of the Gentile world to Christ. He and his family were baptized
    and admitted into the Christian church (Acts 10:1, 44-48). (See CENTURION.)
