Summary: Thaddeus Lebbaeus was a slave boy owned by a man named Callistus, who lived
in Sarepta (located in Phoenicia, a Roman Province of Judea). After Yeshua healed
the only son of Callistus, the man offered Yeshua anything that he should request
(Y:22:76-77). Yeshua asked Callistus to set free the young boy Thaddeus, that Yeshua
might adopt him as a son. Giving Thaddeus the name Jude, Yeshua and Mary raised him
as their own (Y:22:78-85).
