Sce'va (properly Skeuas, Σεκευᾶς), a Jew residing at Ephesus at the time of Paul's second visit to that city (Ac 19:14-16), A.D. 52. He is described as a "high priest" (ἀρχιερεύς.), either as having exercised the office at Jerusalem, or as being chief of one of the twenty-four classes. His seven sons attempted to exorcise spirits by using the name of Jesus, and on one occasion severe injury was inflicted by the demoniac on two of them (as implied in the term ἀμφοτέρων, the true reading in ver. 16 instead of αὐτῶν).
