bar -a -kı̄´a ( Βαραχίας , Barachı́as ; the King James Version Barachias; Matthew 23:35 ): Father of Zachariah who was murdered between the sanctuary and the altar. It is possible that reference is made to Zechariah, the son of Jehoiada (2 Chronicles 24:20 ), whom Matthew by mistake calls "Z., the son of Barachiah." Luke 11:51 omits the name of the father of Z. (compare Zahn's Kommentar , 649, note).
