Names and TItles

Variation: Zerubbabel.
Greek: Ζοροβάβελ (Zorobábel) From Hebrew, means Begotten in Babylon.
Variation: Zerubbabel (Ezra, Luke 3).
Zerubbabel (1 Chron 3) was the son of Shealtiel (1 Chron 3).3
Zerubbabel (1 Chron 3) leads many Jews in returning to Israel 520-515 BCE.
Zerubbabel (1 Chron 3) is listed in 1 Chronicles 3:19 as the son of Pedaiah (1 Chron 3) but everywhere else as the son of Shealtiel (1 Chron 3). Shealtiel, the first son of King Jehoiachin of Judah has no sons lised in 1 Chronicles 3, so perhaps died without heir, so Pedaiah assumed his family line, and so Zerubbabel is biologically son of Pedaiah but "legally" son of Shealtiel.
