Joost Goethals was an Anabaptist martyr executed at Ghent, Belgium, in 1569. There are no particulars about this martyr, neither the exact date of execution nor the way in which he was put to death. Verheyden, in his study of the sources at Ghent, did not find this martyr. His name is found as No. 31 in the song "Als men schreef duyst vijfhondert jaer, Ende twee en tsestich mede," in the 1578a edition of the Lietboecxken van den Offer des Heeren.
