Judea

 

Pronunciation:  dzhou-DEE-uh

Occurrences:  27

First Reference:  Yeshua 1:8

 

Thus did many have regard for him, and many went out from Jerusalem and all Judea and the regions round about to hear him. And there were many who were baptized in the waters of the Jordan, having believed in all his words.

 

 

See:  Palestine

 

Summary:  Falling under Roman administration in 6 CE, Judea was located in the south of Palestine, bordered to the north by the province of Samaria, and to the east by Perea. Significant towns including Jerusalem, Emmaus, Arimathea, and Bethany were all located in Judea. Pontius Pilate served as the Roman governor, or Procurator, of Judea, and was subject to Vitellius, the governor of Syria. The region was a focal point of civil unrest due to conflict arising from Roman occupation among the Jewish people, and the brutal fashion in which Pilate ruled.

But Galerius which watched closely over all which happened in Jerusalem, grew troubled all the more because of Yeshua, for wheresoever the Lord went, even there would the multitudes gather to hear him.

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:
