Judas, Juda


JUDAS, JUDA - (1) The name of an ancestor of Jesus (Lk 3:30). In the King James Version it occurs also in Lk 3:26, but the Revised Version (British and American) has "Joda" (Westcott-Hort, Ioda).

(2) Judas Iscariot (see separate article).

(3) One of the brothers of Jesus (Mt 13:55; Mk 6:3).


(4) An apostle, "not Iscariot" (Jn 14:22). He is generally identified with Lebbaeus (Mt 10:3) and Thaddeus (Mk 3:18). See LEBBAEUS; THADDAEUS. He is called JUDAS OF JAMES (which see) (Lk 6:16; Acts 1:13), which means "the son of James" not (the King James Version) "the brother of James."

(5) A Galilean who stirred up rebellion "in the days of the enrollment" (Acts 5:37).


(6) One with whom Paul lodged in Damascus, whose house was in "the street which is called Straight" (Acts 9:11). Nothing further is known of him. A house is pointed out as his, in a lane off the Straight Street.

(7) Judas Barsabbas (Acts 15:22,27,32; see separate article).
