Judas the Zealot


Judas the Zealot

The name Judas the Zealot (Judas Zelotes) is mentioned in the "Epistle of the Apostles" (Epistula Apostolorum), written in the 2nd century. He is usually identified with the Apostle Simon the Zealot, with which he shares the surname, or with the Apostle Jude.

Bruce Metzger, in his "Textual Commentary on the Greek NT", comments on Matthew 10:3:

:"The name "Judas Zelotes" in several Old Latin manuscripts (compare also the same name in the fifth century mosaic in the great Baptistry at Ravenna) may be a further assimilation to the previous name in Luke's list, "Simon who was called the Zealot.""
