Jonathan in the Bible

so there is one famous Jonathan, but it being such a fantastic name i thought i'd shae with you the other ones that are lurking in the pages of scripture:

  • Obviously the Jonathan who was Davids friend
  • In Judges 18 we have: There the Danites set up for themselves the idols, and Jonathan son of Gershom, the son of Moses, [d] and his sons were priests for the tribe of Dan until the time of the captivity of the land. 31 They continued to use the idols Micah had made, all the time the house of God was in Shiloh. hmm not a good one there idol worshiper
  • 2 Sam ch 17 has another Jonathan son of a priest who seems to be sympathetic to David during the rebellion of his son and apears in the history.
  • Jeremiah 37:20But now, my lord the king, please listen. Let me bring my petition before you: Do not send me back to the house of Jonathan the secretary, or I will die there." This Jonathan also seems to be not a nice guy who wants to kill Jeremiah.
  • Ezra 10 has a JOnathan who oppses Ezra over the issue of repentance of marrying outside isreal
  • 1 Chronicals 27 has a Jonathan who was the son of Uzziah who was in charge of sotre houses

thwere are other Jonathans (well bout 3) who are mentioned in genealogies, so there you go Jonathans in the Bible,
