Zacharias

 

Pronunciation:  zak-uh-RAI-uhs

Occurrences:  1

First Reference:  Yeshua 2:31

 

For Herod, in the midst of his power, did build a house made all beautiful on the outside, having adorned it with great riches, yet inwardly is it filled with hypocrisy and deceit; having spilled upon the altar the innocent blood of Zacharias.”

 

 

See:  John the Baptizer

 

Summary:  Zacharias was the father of John the Baptizer and a priest. According to Azrael’s Commentary, John’s public criticism of religious leaders and Herod the Great became such a threat that he began receiving messages from Herod and the rulers of the temple threatening that unless he stop his criticism of them, his father would be killed. John was not dissuaded by the threats, and tragically, Zacharias was murdered while officiating at the altar (AZC — John the Baptizer).
