Zebedee [EBD]

a Galilean fisherman, the husband of Salome (q.v.), and the father of James and John, two of our Lord's disciples (Matt. 4:21; 27:56; Mark 15:40). He seems to have been a man of some position in Capernaum, for he had two boats (Luke 5:4) and "hired servants" (Mark 1:20) of his own. No mention is made of him after the call of his two sons by Jesus.

Zebedee [NAVE]

ZEBEDEE, father of James and John, Matt. 4:21; 20:20; 27:56; Mark 1:20.

ZEBEDEE [SMITH]

(my gift) (Greek form of Zabdi) a fisherman of Galilee, the father of the apostles James the Great and John (Matthew 4:21) and the husband of Salome. (Matthew 27:56; Mark 15:40) He probably lived either at Bethsaida or in its immediate neighborhood. It has been inferred from the mention of his "hired servants," (Mark 1:20) and from the acquaintance between the apostle John and Annas the high priest, (John 18:15) that the family of Zebedee were in easy circumstances. comp. (John 19:27) although not above manual labor. (Matthew 4:21) He appears only twice in the Gospel narrative, namely, in (Matthew 4:21,22; Mark 1:19,20) where he is seen in his boat with his two sons mending their nets.

ZEBEDEE [ISBE]

ZEBEDEE - zeb'-e-de (zibhdi, "the gift of God"; Zebedaios): The father of the apostles James and John (Mk 1:19) and a fisherman on the Sea of Galilee (Mk 1:20), the husband of Salome (Mt 27:56; compare Mk 16:1).

See JAMES; SALOME.
