Boanerges

Additional Links

The meaning of this name is explained to us, as given by Jesus himself, (Mark 3:17) "the Sons of thunder." Perhaps the word is a compound, from Bini, son; Regem, thunder, or tempest; intimating, perhaps, that those sons of Zebedee would be powerful preachers under the Lord.
