Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 2333: Θευδᾶς

Θευδᾶς (probably contracted from θεοδωρος, Winers Grammar, 103 (97); especially Lightfoot on Colossians 4:15; on its inflection cf. Buttmann, 20 (18)), , Theudas, an impostor who instigated a rebellion which came to a wretched end in the time of Augustus: Acts 5:36. Josephus (Antiquities, 20, 5, 1) makes mention of one Theudas, a magician, who came into notice by pretending that he was a prophet and was destroyed when Cuspius Fadus governed Judaea in the time of Claudius. Accordingly, many interpreters hold that there were two insurgents by the name of Theudas; while others, with far greater probability, suppose that the mention of Theudas is ascribed to Gamaliel by an anachronism on the part of Luke. On the different opinions of others cf. Meyer on Acts, the passage cited; Winers RWB, under the word; Keim in Schenkel see 510f; (especially Hackett in B. D., under the word).
