OK. We agree Salome is the wife of Zebedee, mother of James and John. The tradition says she's one of the three daughters of Anna, but that's just tradition, without any secure foundation.And you're entitled to your opinions, but please supply references.
But I see no evidence there is a Salome, sister of Jesus?
LOL, rather a lot of eisegesis going on here. The most common verse is:Acts 1: 14; It was the custom of the disciples after the death of Jesus, to meet and worship with the mother and family of Jesus; [His sisters, his father Cleophas/Alpheaus/Joseph the son of Heli, his half brother Simeon, etc].
"with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brethren."
"with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers."
Nothing more than that. 'adelphos' can be read as biological brother, brother-in-spirit, friend, etc. No mention of Jesus' father, btw.
Careful. Mark is commonly derived from Mars, the Roman God of War. Not sure about 'the hammerer' ...Mary the Mother of young John, who had been surnamed "MARK," which, according to Young's Analytical Concordance to the Bible, means, "Hammer, or the Hammerer," and John surnamed "Mark," is associated with young John, who Jesus had surnamed "Man of Thunder." [Thor]
And Jesus refers to both brothers, "and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder" (Mark 3:17. In that instance, the derivation is Hebrew, and means someone of a fiery and zelous nature – although He might just be teasing them about their Roman name.
OK. Well my evidence is a quick wiki. Never the gold standard, but a pointer – the lineage and family tree of Philip of Herod seems well attested. I see no sign of scholarly dispute?It is disputed today, if there ever was a 'Herod Philip II,' many scholars today, are of the firm opinion that there was no Philip1, and Philip2, but only Philip the son of Herod who ruled from Bethsaida, but please supply evidence if you believe there was.
Yes. A different Philip.It was to Philip of Bethsaida that the Greeks came, when seeking an audience with Jesus.
Where's that? I check EB and I get:According to the Encyclopedia Britt, ‘Philip of Bethsaida, the son of ‘Herod the Great’ was born in 20 BC of a young Jewess by the name of ‘Cleopatra’ (A Macedonian name)
1: Philip the Tetrarch or Herod Philip born 20BC
2: Philip the Apostle, born Bethsaida of Galilee
I think you've followed a common error, not, I think, in the EB.Philip [Philadelphus] the son of Cleopatra, married his niece Herodias the daughter of his half brother Aristobulus, one of two sons of Miriamne, who were murdered by Herod the Great.
Herod II (27BC-33/34 AD) was a son of Herod the Great and Mariamne II, the daughter of Simon Boethus the High Priest.
"Some writers call him Herod Philip I (not to be confused with Philip the Tetrarch, whom some writers call "Herod Philip II")
According to Josephus: Jewish Antiquities (Book XVIII, Chapter 5, 4):
"Herodias, [...], was married to Herod, the son of Herod the Great by Mariamne, the daughter of Simon the High Priest. [Herod II and Herodias] had a daughter, Salome..."
Herod II to was second in the line of succession, but following Antipater's execution (4BC) for plotting to poison his father, moved him to first in line as eldest surviving son, but his mother's knowledge of the plot and failure to stop it led to his being dropped from this position in Herod the Great's will just days before he died. He lived in Rome with Herodias as a private citizen, surviving his father's deathbed purges. Herod Antipas and his other remaining half-brothers shared Judaea amongst them.
According to Josephius (ibid) "Herodias took upon her to confound the laws of our country, and divorced herself from her husband while he was alive, and was married to Herod Antipas"
As you can see, it's important to follow references and keep them in mind, or you spin off into all sorts of assumptions and errors.https://www.britannica.com/biography/Saint-Philip-the-Apostle
