Antonia (fortress)

 

Pronunciation: an-TO-nee-uh

Occurrences:  4
First Reference:
 Yeshua 4:23

 

And entering in at the sheep gate, beside the fortress Antonia, Yeshua came to the pools of Bethesda and there saw Onias sitting beside the waters desiring to be healed, for he had a crooked foot which was injured from his youth.

 

 

See:  Herod (the Great), Marcus Galerius, Pontius Pilate, Rome

 

Summary:  Military barracks built by Herod the Great in Jerusalem, the fortress of Antonia was where Pilate ordered the vestments of the High Priest to be stored (AZC - Pontius Pilate). Marcus Galerius was a Tribune of Rome and the Prefect, or military commander of the Antonia fortress (Y:5:1).

 

 

Azrael’s Commentary - Pontius Pilate

 

[...] Pilate was notorious for his hatred of Jews. Their religious arrogance and air of superiority filled Pilate with loathing and contempt. Pilate, therefore, took every opportunity to humiliate and ridicule the Jewish people. As part of this humiliation, Pilate ordered the sacred vestments of the High Priest to be kept in the fortress of Antonia; forcing the High Priest to go to the Roman Prefect of Jerusalem whenever he needed his vestments to officiate at the temple.

 

 

 

Notes/References:

 

Now there overlooked the grounds of the temple the fortress Antonia, and standing in the upper reaches thereof stood Marcus Galerius, for he was appointed by Pilate to command.

Yeshua 5:1

 

And calling forth a scribe, he wrote unto Caesarea, saying: ‘To the most excellent governor, Pontius Pilate, Procurator of all Judea and Samaria: From Marcus Galerius, Tribune of Rome and Prefect of Antonia and all Jerusalem, Greetings:

Yeshua 39:45

 

Now the Passover drew near and there entered into the city Pontius Pilate, and with him marched two cohorts unto the fortress Antonia.

Yeshua 40:1
