Rembrandt, Timotheo na bibi yake, 1648.

Loisi (kwa Kigiriki: Λωις, Lois) alikuwa bibi wa Timotheo, mwandamizi wa Mtume Paulo katika karne ya 1 BK.

Mwanamke Myahudi aliyeishi katika maeneo ya Uturuki kusini wa leo, aliingia pamoja na binti yake Eunike, katika Ukristo.

Wote wawili wanatajwa kwa sifa katika Barua ya pili ya Paulo kwa Timotheo 1:5, ilipoandikwa, "Nakumbuka imani yako isiyo na unafiki, aliyokuwa nayo kwanza bibi yako Loisi, halafu mama yako Eunike na sasa, nina hakika, imo ndani mwako pia."

Wataalamu wengi wanawahusisha na maneno ya 2 Tim. 3:15, ambamo Timotheo anakumbushwa "jinsi tangu utotoni alivyozoea maandiko matakatifu". [1]

Umuhimu wa ushahidi huo ni kwamba, wakati Timotheo ni pingili katika mlolongo wa Mitume katika kushirikisha mamlaka ya Yesu na Mitume wake kwa vizazi vijavyo vya maaskofu, mwenyewe alipokea kwanza imani nyumbani mwake kupitia mlolongo wa akina mama.

Mara nyingi Loisi amechukuliwa kama kielelezo cha bibi Mkristo. [2]

Wengine wanafikia hatua ya kusema hao walikuwa ndugu wa Paulo, ndiyo sababu aliwafahamu vizuri.[3]
