ZEBEDEE (Σεβεδαϊος; apparently from the Hebrew = "the gift of Yhwh"):

Father of the apostles James and John, and husband of Salome; a native of Galilee and a fisherman by calling (Matt. iv. 21, xxvii. 56; Mark xv. 40). It seems from the mention of his boat and hired servants (ib. i. 20) that Zebedee was a man of some means, although he had to work himself.
