    Jehoiada in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE je-hoi'-a-da (yehoyadha`, "Yahweh knows"; Iodae): (1) Father of Benaiah, the captain of David's body-guard (2 Sam 8:18; 20:23; 23:20,22; 1 Ki 1:8, etc.). Jehoiada was "the son of a valiant man of Kabzeel" (2 Sam 23:20), but commentators read with Septuagint and Ewald, "Benaiah (the son of Jehoiada) a man of valor." Kabzeel was a town belonging to Judah on the border of Edom in the South (Josh 15:21). In 1 Ch 27:5, we read "Benaiah, the son of Jehoiada the priest, chief," the Revised Version (British and American), but the Revised Version margin has "chief minister" wrongly. Yet Jehoiada is nowhere else called a priest or even a Levite, though in 1 Ch 12:27 (Hebrew, verse 28) a Jehoiada is mentioned as a military "leader of the house of Aaron," who came to David to Hebron with other members of the house of Levi. In 1 Ch 27:34 there is named among David's counselors, "Jehoiada the son. of Benaiah," where some commentators would read with two manuscripts, "Benaiah, the son of Jehoiada" though Curtis, Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Books of Chronicles, 295, keeps the Massoretic Text...

    Jehoiada in Wikipedia (Hebrew: יהוידע‎) is the name of two priests in the Hebrew Bible: First Jehoiada. The first Jehoiada lived around the time of Kings Saul and David. A priest, he is mentioned as the father of Benaiah, a warrior in David's army who eventually became the head of the army under Solomon. Second Jehoiada. Jehoiada was the High priest during the reigns of Ahaziah, Athaliah, and Joash. By his arranged (by King Ahaziah) marriage with the princess Jehosheba (alternately Jehoshabeath), he became the brother-in-law of King Ahaziah (2 Chron 22:11 ). King Ahaziah died shortly thereafter in battle at Megiddo and the throne was usurped by Queen Athaliah. About ninety years old at the time of this marriage to the young princess, he was instrumental in the staging of the coup that dethroned and killed the ultra wicked Queen Athaliah. Jehosheba and Jehoiada had rescued the infant Joash from Athaliah's slaughter of the royal children. For six years, they hid the sole surviving heir to the throne within the temple. Jehoiada guided much younger King Joash in a righteous rule for about 35 years which included restoration of the temple (2 Kings 12:4-15 ). Jehoida is also noteworthy for the national covenant that he made "between him, and between all the people, and between the king, that they should be the LORD's people" (2 Chronicles 23:16 ). Jehoiada lived 130 years and was buried very honorably among the kings in the city of David (2 Chronicles 24:16 ). Jehoiada's son, Zechariah, was later martyred by King Joash.

    Jehoiada Scripture - 2 Chronicles 22:11 But Jehoshabeath, the daughter of the king, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him from among the king's sons that were slain, and put him and his nurse in a bedchamber. So Jehoshabeath, the daughter of king Jehoram, the wife of Jehoiada the priest, (for she was the sister of Ahaziah,) hid him from Athaliah, so that she slew him not.

    Jehoiada Scripture - 2 Chronicles 23:18 Also Jehoiada appointed the offices of the house of the LORD by the hand of the priests the Levites, whom David had distributed in the house of the LORD, to offer the burnt offerings of the LORD, as [it is] written in the law of Moses, with rejoicing and with singing, [as it was ordained] by David.

    Jehoiada Scripture - 2 Kings 11:17 And Jehoiada made a covenant between the LORD and the king and the people, that they should be the LORD'S people; between the king also and the people.
