( Ἰωάννης , Iōánnēs ): The name of 4 persons:

(1) JOHN THE BAPTIST (which see).

(2) The apostle, the son of Zebedee, and brother of James (see JOHN , THE APOSTLE ).

(3) A relative of Annas the high priest, who sat in the Sanhedrin when Peter and John were tried (Acts 4:6 ). Lightfoot supposes him to be the Jochanan ben Zacchai of the Talmud, who, however, did not belong to the family of the high priest. Nothing is really known of him.

(4) JOHN MARK (which see).

(5) Father of Simon Peter (John 1:42; John 21:15 , John 21:17 , margin "Greek Joanes : called in Matthew 16:17 , Jonah").
