4. Son of Jehozadak, first high priest after the Babylonish captivity, b.c. 536. Jeshua was probably born in Babylon, whither his father Jehozadak had been taken captive while young. 1 Chron. 6:15, Authorized Version. He came up from Babylon in the first year of Cyrus, with Zerubbabel, and took a leading part with him in the rebuilding of the temple and the restoration of the Jewish commonwealth. The two prophecies concerning him in Zech. 3 and 6:9-15 point him out as an eminent type of Christ.
