Jotapata

 

Pronunciation:  dzho-tuh-PAH-tuh

Occurrences:  1

First Reference:  Yeshua 11:2-3

 

And certain women which had been healed of afflictions and infirmities ministered unto the Lord with all gentle affection.

And of them were Mary of Magdala, Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod’s chief steward, Susanna of Jotapata, Mary the sister of Martha and Lazarus, Regilla of Hippos, and many others also, and they gave unto the ministry of their substance.

 

 

See:  Susanna of Jotapata

 

Summary:  Jotapata was a fortress city near the town of Nazareth that was built by the Romans in order to handle problems posed by the national fervor of Jews in Galilee. One of Yeshua’s closest apostles, named Susanna, was from Jotapata (Y:11:2-3).

 

 

Notes/References:

 

According to Azrael’s Commentary, the zealot, bandit, and self-proclaimed messiah, Judas of Gamala, was responsible for a deadly attack on a group of Romans who were garrisoned at Jotapata. In an act of revenge (sometime around 17 CE), the Romans went to the nearest town, which was Nazareth, and gathering all the men of Nazareth together, picked out twenty men at random and crucified them. Joseph, [the father of Yeshua] was one of those men (Azrael’s Commentary - Joseph).
