Canaanite The

Additional Links

Ca'naanite, The. The designation of the apostle Simon, otherwise, known as "Simon Zelotes." It occurs in Matthew 10:4; Mark 3:18, and is derived from a Chaldee or Syriac word by which the Jewish sect or faction of the "Zealots" was designated - a turbulent and seditious sect, especially conspicuous at the siege of Jerusalem. They taught that all foreign rule over Jews was unscriptural, and opposed that rule in every way.
