Simon Ben Simeon  (Simon of Bethany)

 

Pronunciation:  SAI-muhn + ben + SIH-mee-uhn

Occurrences:  12

First Reference:  Yeshua 4:11

 

Now there lived in Bethany, Simon Ben Simeon, a Pharisee afflicted with leprosy. And hearing of Lazarus he came unto Yeshua to be healed.

 

 

See:  Bethany, Pharisees

 

Summary:  Simon was a Pharisee from Bethany who suffered from leprosy. He was the second person to be healed by Yeshua, after curing his brother-in-law, Lazarus, of blindness (Y:4:11-13). After Simon had been healed, the chief priests came to feel even more threatened after seeing for themselves how one of their peers had experienced a miracle performed by the Nazarene (Y:5:16-19). More than two years later, Simon invited Yeshua to have supper at his home. It was at this event that a prostitute washed and anointed Yeshua’s feet, which greatly disturbed the Pharisees who were present. When Yeshua blessed and forgave the harlot of her sins, the Pharisees accuse him of blasphemy (Y:35:11-34).

 

 

Notes/References:


Now there lived in Bethany, Simon Ben Simeon, a Pharisee afflicted with leprosy. And hearing of Lazarus he came unto Yeshua to be healed.

And the Lord, taking a cruse of water, ministered unto him. And Simon was made clean again, and Yeshua commanded that he should go and show himself unto the priests at the temple.

But when the priests in Jerusalem heard concerning Lazarus and saw the leprosy fallen away from Simon’s body, they were astonished and they went and told all these things to the chief priests and elders of the temple.

Yeshua 4:11-13

 

Now hearing this, Caiaphas made peace with Galerius, and rushing to the temple, he called into the chambers of the High Priest all the chief priests, elders, and scribes and told them all which Marcus Galerius had spoken unto him concerning Yeshua.

And one spoke, saying: “But what shall we do against this man, seeing that he is a worker of miracles?

Did we not see for ourselves the light fall upon him from Heaven? Did he not heal, from among us, one of our own brethren, even Simon of Bethany?

If we thus let him alone, then all Israel will believe in him; and if it so be that he would take by force the throne of David, then shall the Romans come and take away both our place and nation.”

Yeshua 5:16-19
