Andrew John Jukes (5 November 1815 in Bombay – 4 July 1901 in Southampton) was an English theologian.

The son of Andrew Jukes and his wife Georgina Ewart, he was educated at Harrow School and Trinity College, Cambridge.[1][2] He was initially a curate in the Church of England at St. John's Church, Hull, but became convinced of Baptist teaching and underwent adult baptism at the George Street Chapel, Hull, on 31 August 1843. After leaving the Church of England, he joined the Plymouth Brethren.[3][4][5][6][7]

Jukes later left the Plymouth Brethren and founded an independent chapel in Hull. Among those influenced by Jukes was Hudson Taylor.[8][9]
