In some translations of Luke 3:33, Admin is an ancestor of Jesus, the father of Aminadab and son of Arni.
Alexander was a member of the Sanhedrin named in Acts 4:6 as part of a group before whom Peter and John were required to give an account of their healing power, following their arrest on the day of Pentecost.

The Peshitta calls him Elmodad, but the Encyclopaedia Biblica suggests the reading "Elmatham," a form of the name Elnathan.
A Hermogenes is briefly mentioned in 2 Timothy 1:15, where he, along with someone named Phygelus, are described as having "turned away" from Paul the Apostle. Nothing more is known about Hermogenes.
Jezebel was a false prophetess whom Jesus warned the church in Thyatira not to follow. She encouraged her followers to be promiscuous and to eat food sacrificed to idols. Jesus gave her a chance to repent of her sins, but she did not; thus, Jesus promised to punish her (see Revelation 2:20–23).
Judas of Straight Street in DamascusEdit
When he went blind at his conversion experience, Paul the Apostle stayed at the home of a man named Judas who lived on Straight Street in Damascus. Then, Jesus told Ananias to go to Judas' house and restore Paul's sight (see Acts 9:1–19).
Levi (Hebrew לֵוִי) was the name of two minor figures mentioned in the Bible. For the more famous biblical character by this name, see Levi.

- Son of another Levi (Luke 3:29), 31 generations before Jesus and 11 generations after King David
A Christian of Jerusalem with whom Paul lodged (Acts 21:16). He was apparently a native of Cyprus, like Barnabas (Acts 11:19–20), and was well known to the Christians of Caesarea (Acts 4:36). He was an "old disciple" (R.V., "early disciple"), i.e., he had become a Christian in the beginning of the formation of the Church in Jerusalem.
Nahum, in addition to being the name of the well-known biblical prophet Nahum, is also the name of a figure mentioned in passing in Luke's version of the genealogy of Jesus. The Nahum of Luke has his name spelled Naum in the King James Version.
Tryphosa was a Christian mentioned in Romans 16:12 with other saints to whom Paul the apostle sent greetings and salutations.
