Zebedee

Additional Links
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 (Luke 5:4 ) and "hired servants" (Mark 1:20 ) of his own. No mention is made of him after the call of his two sons by Jesus.
