Marcus Quintus

 

Pronunciation:  MAHR-kuhs + QUIN-tus

Occurrences:  1 - Commentary only

 

 

See:  Demitrius

 

Summary:  Prior to the fall of Jerusalem (70 CE), Demitrius paid to have Roman legionnaires watch over the house where Mary and Susanna were living. He told the legionnaires that Susanna was the widowed wife of Marcus Quintus, the former Prefect of Jotapata (AZC - Demitrius).

 

 

Azrael’s Commentary - Demitrius (excerpt)

 

[...] Demitrius appointed himself the guardian to the household of Mary and Susanna, and at his own expense he had the house of Mary and Susanna completely refurbished and appointed. During the Jewish uprising of 68-70 CE, he tried to persuade Mary and Susanna to take refuge in Hippos, but both women kindly refused the offer, preferring to stay in Nazareth among friends and family. Still fearful for their welfare, Demitrius paid to have the house discreetly watched over by Roman legionnaires who were told that Mary and Susanna were friends of Rome, and that Susanna was none other than the widowed wife of Marcus Quintus the former Prefect of Jotapata. Demitrius died in 77 CE, and according to Greek custom his body was cremated.
