Σίμων, Σίμωνος (Buttmann, 16 (14)), (שִׁמְעון, 'a hearing', from שָׁמַע , 'to hear'; (there was also a Greek name Σίμων (allied with Σῖμος, i. e. 'flat-nosed'; Fick, Gr. Personennamen, p. 210), but cf. B. D., under the word at the beginning; Lightfoot on Galatians, p. 266f)), Simon;

2. the brother of Judas Lebbaeus (cf. under the word Ἰούδας, 8), an apostle, who is called Κανανίτης (so R G, but L T Tr WH Κανιναιος, which see), Matthew 10:4; Mark 3:18, and ζηλωτής, Luke 6:15; Acts 1:13.

Grotius, Schleiermacher, Holtzmann, Schenkel, Ewald, Keim, Hug, Bleek (see his Synoptative Erklär. on Luke, the passage cited) to) be the same as Simon the leper, Matthew 26:6; Mark 14:3; (but the occurrence recorded by Luke, the passage cited is now commonly thought to be distinct from that narrated by Matt. and Mark the passages cited; cf.

Möller in Herzog edition 2, vol. xiv., pp. 246ff; Schaff, Hist. of the Chris. Church, vol. ii (1883) § 121).
