Metaphysical meaning of Pudens (mbd)
Pudens, pu'-dens (Lat.)--shamefaced; bashful; modest; decent; virtuous.
One who sent salutation to Timothy in Paul's letter written to Timothy from Rome (II Tim. 4:21). Meta. Virtue and humility, the latter possibly carried somewhat to an extreme (modest, bashful, shamefaced, virtuous). True humility, as well as virtue and single-mindedness as to the good, is needed very much in the professing Christian. The true Christian is humble and true, since he knows the nothingness of the lesser self in man and the allness of the Christ- to the spiritual man he attributes all praise, all greatness, all capability, all glory.
