  1. simon the canaanite

    Simon the Canaanite, also known as Simon the Zealot, was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ, as mentioned in the New Testament of the Christian Bible. The term "Canaanite" is derived from his attempt to instigate a revolt against the Roman empire, as Canaanites were known for their nationalist zeal. His surname "Zealot" also comes from his membership in the Zealots, a Jewish political party zealous for the comprehensive observance of the Mosaic Law. Very little is known about his life and deeds after the accounts mentioned in the Gospels.
