Holman Bible Dictionary
(zihl' uht) A militant radical; one who acts with great zeal for a cause. The term came to designate a particular segment of the Jewish population who continually tried to overthrow foreign oppression, especially the Roman rule in Palestine. Jesus called a zealot, Simon, as one of His twelve disciples (Luke 6:15
). See Jewish Parties.
