Egyptian, the

Additional Links

EGYPTIAN, THE . An unnamed leader of the ‘Assassins’ or ‘Sicarii’ for whom Claudius Lysias took St. Paul ( Acts 21:38 ). This man is also mentioned by Josephus as a leader defeated by Felix, but not as connected with the ‘Assassins’ ( Ant . XX. viii. 6). The Egyptian escaped, and Lysias thought that he had secured him in St. Paul’s person. The discrepancies between Josephus and St. Luke here make mutual borrowing improbable. See Theudas.
