Noble Jacob Johnson (August 23, 1887 - March 17, 1968) was a U.S. Representative from Indiana and a judge of the United States Court of Customs and Patent Appeals.

Born in Terre Haute, Indiana, Johnson attended public schools. After reading law to be admitted to the bar in 1911, he commenced practice in Terre Haute. He was a deputy prosecuting attorney for the forty-third judicial circuit of Indiana in 1917 and 1918. He served as prosecuting attorney for the same judicial circuit from 1921 to 1924.

Johnson was elected as a Republican to the Sixty-ninth, Seventieth, and Seventy-first Congresses (March 4, 1925 – March 3, 1931). He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1930 to the Seventy-second Congress, and for election in 1936 to the Seventy-fifth Congress. However, he was elected to the Seventy-sixth and to the four succeeding Congresses and served from January 3, 1939, until his resignation on July 1, 1948.

Nominated by President Harry S. Truman to the United States Court of Customs and Patent Appeals, Johnson received his commission on June 10, 1948, and commenced service on July 2, 1948. He served as chief judge from July 20, 1956, until his retirement August 7, 1958. He continued to serve in senior status until his death. He was interred in Bethesda Cemetery, West Terre Haute, Indiana.
