Jesus Ben Zappha

Resource Toolbox

General (σ τ ρ α τ η γ ό ς ) of Idumæ a in the first century, appointed by the revolutionary government of Jerusalem after Cestius Gallus had been driven away. Jesus' companion was Eleazar b. Neos and both belonged to high-priestly families (Josephus, "B. J." 2:20, § 4). Niger of Peræ a, who had been until then governor of Idumæ a, was commanded to place himself under the orders of the two generals (ib. ). Jesus is perhaps identical with a former high priest of the same name, who, together with other nobles, fled from Jerusalem to the Romans shortly before the destruction of the Temple (ib. 6:2, § 2).
