known. (1.) One of the chiefs who subscribed the covenant (Neh. 10:21). (2.) The last high priest mentioned in the Old Testament (Neh. 12:11, 22), sons of Jonathan.
About this time it was that jaddua the high priest died, and Onias his son took the high priesthood.
The news threw jaddua the high priest into an agony of alarm.
Now when John had departed this life, his son jaddua succeeded in the high priesthood.
Johanan the father of jaddua was now grown up, having a chamber in the Temple.
It is not probable that Nehemiah lived to see this jaddua in the high priest's office.
