The Definition of the word Zebedee


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.
