- Zechariah ben Jehoiada
Zechariah Ben Jehoiada was the son or grandson of
Jehoiada, the high priest in the times of Ahaziahand Jehoash of Judah(Joash).
After the death of Jehoiada, Zechariah boldly condemned both king Jehoash and the people for their rebellion against God (, bibleref|Luke|11:50-51|NIV. The
Gospel of Matthewrecords his name as "Zechariah son of Berechiah". This identification can be reconciled if Jehoiada was Zechariah's grandfather, and Berechiah his father; or if Berechiah was another name for Jehoiada. There are other possible identifications for the person Jesus was referring to.
