Quirinius

 

Pronunciation:  kwihr-IHN-ee-uhs

Occurrences:  1

First Reference:  Yeshua 2:3

 

For there had arisen aforetime, Judas of Gamala, the Galilean who refused the census of Quirinius, and in great wrath he caused that many should lift the sword against Caesar, and there was crucified of his followers some two thousand souls.

 

 

See:  Judas of Gamala, Judea

 

Summary:  In the year 6 CE, Publius Sulpicius Quirinius (51 BCE-21 CE) was appointed governor of Roman Syria, and Judea was declared a Roman province [1]. Quirinius was authorized to carry out a census throughout Judea for tax purposes. This angered many Jews, including Judas of Gamala — a rebel, bandit and self-proclaimed messiah from Galilee — who, with his followers, violently opposed the Roman occupation and the census (Y:2:3).
