Azrael’s Commentary - Zebedee

 

A hard working fisherman on the Sea of Galilee, and father of James and John who bitterly resented his sons’ devotion to Yeshua. A man who lived only to work and make money for his family, Zebedee resented anyone who got in the way of his simple goals in life, i.e., to make his family prosperous and worthy of note. Zebedee was a hot tempered and volatile man who tolerated no nonsense from his two sons. To Zebedee, work was the greatest virtue and prosperity was a blessing granted only to those who worked hard for it. When James and John went out on their own in the fishing business and successfully partnered themselves with Simon and Andrew, Zebedee was greatly pleased; for his family of fishermen was now combined with another family of fishermen and everything was splendid. But when Yeshua came on the scene and James and John and then Simon and Andrew abandoned their boats, it seemed the end of his dreams for a prosperous fishing business. His meeting with Yeshua convinced him that his sons were fools to be so easily deceived (Yeshua 7:44-57).

 

To Zebedee, Yeshua was just a charlatan, and all his miracles mere tricks to convince simple people that he was sent by God. He spent the rest of his life trying to prove to his sons that Yeshua was a deceiver, and behind every effort to discredit Yeshua was the hateful tongue of Zebedee. Later, when he heard that Yeshua had been crucified, Zebedee literally danced with glee. When rumors began to circulate that Yeshua had risen from the dead, Zebedee dismissed it as lies and wishful thinking. His sons never returned to their boats, and their nets lay rotting on the shore. Zebedee spent the last years of his life angry, bitter and estranged from his sons, James and John.
