(bohuhnuhr' jeess; sons of thunder ) A name given by Jesus to James and John, the sons of Zebedee (Mark 3:17 ). The Gospel writer gave the meaning of the name as “sons of thunder,” but did not explain why it was appropriate. The name may be indicative of the thunderous temperament these brothers apparently possessed. See Apostles ; Disciples .
