Occurrences:  1

First Reference:  Yeshua 4:22

Summary:  The third son of Mattathias, a Jewish priest, Judas and his brothers supported their father in a revolt against the Seleucid ruler Antiochus IV, who had issued laws restricting Jewish religious practices. After the death of his father, Judas took lead of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire (167–160 BCE). The Jewish feast of Dedication (Hanukkah) commemorates Judah’s restoration of worship at the temple in Jerusalem on the 25th of Kislev in 164 BCE.
