Zorakis

 

Pronunciation:  zo-RAK-uhs

Occurrences:  1

First Reference:  Yeshua 9:38

 

Now when the Master had finished speaking, he went unto the shore of the sea, and many followed after him; and there came unto him a certain Greek whose name was Zorakis.

 

 

See:  Capernaum, Craetius

 

Summary:  Having just healed a man of a withered hand at the synagogue in Capernaum (Y:9:1-6), Yeshua left towards the Sea of Galilee. One of the many that followed him was a Greek man named Zorakis, who approached Yeshua and begged him to heal his only son. Yeshua anointed a small cloak with precious oil and instructed Zorakis to place it upon his dying son. The son was “healed in the very hour” (Y:9:38-43).

 

 

Azrael’s Commentary - Zorakis

 

A wealthy vintner whose wines were in great demand by Romans and Greeks alike. He lived near the city of Tiberius. Zorakis had vast vineyards and his wines not only supplied the cities of Decapolis, but went to markets as far away as Damascus and Athens.

His son, whose name was Craetius, was healed by Yeshua through the laying on of a small cloak which had been anointed with oil (Yeshua 9:38-43). In later years, Craetius wrote an account of Yeshua and his teachings, which were read widely in the Christian churches of Asia Minor. His writings became the source material for the Gospel of Peter.

 

 

Notes/References:

 

38. Now when the Master had finished speaking, he went unto the shore of the sea, and many followed after him; and there came unto him a certain Greek whose name was Zorakis.

39. And kneeling before Yeshua, he said: “My Lord, have mercy upon me and my house, for I know that you are come from God.”

40. And the Master taking pity upon him, said: “What would you have me do?”

41. He answered, saying: “My son is sick and near dying. I beg you, therefore, give answer to my prayer and heal him, for he is my only child and in him have I found great joy.”

42. When he heard this, Yeshua took from among his disciples a small cloak, finely made, and anointing it with precious oil, gave it unto him, saying:

43. “Go and place this about your son.” And the man hearing this, went speedily unto his son, and he was healed in the very hour.
