and elders of the people, and there was numbered among them: Ananus Ben Seth, Joseph
Caiaphas, Ismael Ben Phali, Eleazar Ben Haman, Jonathan Ben Ananus, and Simon Ben
Kambith the chief scribe and a teacher of the law.
Summary: Son of Ananus Ben Seth, Jonathan Ben Ananus was among the chief priests
who secretly conspired against Yeshua, even to the extent of having him killed. Jonathan

(Y:21:4-25). Jonathan was also among the chief priests responsible for plotting the
murder of Lazarus (Y:41:29-30), and contributing to events leading to Yeshua’s death.

Kambith, Ismael Ben Phali, and Eleazar Ben Haman (Y:3:28; Y:21:4).

were Ananus Ben Seth his father-in-law, Ismael Ben Phali, Eleazar Ben Haman, Simon
Ben Kambith, and Jonathan Ben Ananus.
