Zacharias

Additional Links

1. Son of Barachias, who was slain between the temple and the altar. Matthew 23:35; Luke 11:51 . This probably refers to Zecharias the son of Jehoiada, who was thus slain by order of the king. 2 Chronicles 24:20-22; 'son' in one of the places may signify 'grandson.' As the Book of Chronicles closes the Hebrew Bible, this assassination of a righteous man may well be deemed the last as that of Abel was the first.

2. Priest of the course of Abia, and father of John the Baptist. Because of his unbelief he was dumb until the child was born. When his son was circumcised, his voice was restored, and being full of the Holy Ghost he praised God and prophesied. His friends proposed the same name for his son; but he objected, and the babe was named John, as directed by the angel. Luke 1 .
