the wife of Zebedee, and mother of St. James the greater, and St. John the evangelist, Matthew 27:56; and one of those holy women who used to attend upon our Saviour in his journeyings, and to minister to him. She was the person who requested of Jesus Christ, that her two sons, James and John, might sit on his right and left hand when he should enter upon his kingdom, having then but the same obscure views as the rest of the disciples; but she gave proof of her faith when she followed Christ to Calvary, and did not forsake him even at the cross, Mark 15:40; Matthew 27:55-56 . She was also one of the women that brought perfumes to embalm him, and who came, for this purpose, to the sepulchre "early in the morning," Mark 16:1-2 . At the tomb they saw two angels, who informed them that Jesus was risen. Returning to Jerusalem, Jesus appeared to them on the way, and said to them, "Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me."
