Zebedee: A Galilean fisherman, the husband of Salome (q.v.), and the father of
James and John, two of our Lord's disciples
(Matthew 4:21; 27:56; Mark 15:40)
He seems to have been a man of some position in Capernaum, for he had
two boats and "hired servants"
(Mark 1:20) of his own. No mention is
made of him after the call of his two sons by Jesus.
