ATS Bible Dictionary
Johanan

Son of Kareah, a leading captain of the Jews after the destruction of Jerusalem, B. C. 588, who recognized the authority of Gedaliah, warned him in vain of the plot of Ishmael, and avenged his murder; but afterwards carried the remnant of the people to Egypt against the remonstrances of Jeremiah, who, unable to check his rebellious and idolatrous course, foretold divine judgments, which in due time were fulfilled, 2 Kings 25:23-26 Jeremiah 40:1-44:30.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Whom Jehovah graciously bestows.

(1.) One of the Gadite heroes who joined David in the desert of Judah (1 Chronicles 12:12).

(2.) The oldest of King Josiah's sons (1 Chronicles 3:15).

(3.) Son of Careah, one of the Jewish chiefs who rallied round Gedaliah, whom Nebuchadnezzar had made governor in Jerusalem (2 Kings 25:23; Jeremiah 40:8). He warned Gedaliah of the plans of Ishmael against him, a warning which was unheeded (Jeremiah 40:13, 16). He afterwards pursued the murderer of the governor, and rescued the captives (41:8, 13, 15, 16). He and his associates subsequently fled to Tahpanhes in Egypt (43:2, 4, 5), taking Jeremiah with them. "The flight of Gedaliah's community to Egypt extinguished the last remaining spark of life in the Jewish state. The work of the ten centuries since Joshua crossed the Jordan had been undone."

JOHANAN

jo-ha'-nan (yochanan, "Yahweh has been gracious"; Ioanan; compare JEHOHANAN):

(1) Son of Kareah, and one of "the captains of the forces who were in the fields" (i.e. probably guerrilla bands), who allied with Gedaliah, governor of Judah, after the fall of Jerusalem, 586 B.C. (2 Kings 25:23 Jeremiah 40:7-43:7). He warned Gedaliah of the plot of Ishmael ben Nethaniah, who was instigated by the Ammonite king Baalis, to murder the governor; but the latter refused to believe him nor would he grant Johanan permission to slay Ishmael (Jeremiah 40:8-16). After Ishmael had murdered Gedaliah and also 70 northern pilgrims, Johanan went in pursuit. He was joined by the unwilling followers of Ishmael, but the murderer escaped. Thereupon Johanan settled at Geruth-Chimham near Bethlehem (Jeremiah 41). As Ishmael's plan was to take the remnant to the land of Ammon, so that of Johanan and his fellow-chiefs was to go to Egypt. They consulted the Divine oracle through Jeremiah, and received the answer that they should remain in Judah (Jeremiah 42). But the prophet was accused of giving false counsel and of being influenced by Baruch. The chiefs then resolved to go to Egypt, and forced Jeremiah and Baruch to accompany them (Jeremiah 43).

(2) The eldest son of King Josiah (1 Chronicles 3:15), apparently = "Jehoahaz" (2 Kings 23:30-33).

(3) Son of Elioenai, and a Davidic post-exilic prince (1 Chronicles 3:24).

(4) Father of the Azariah who was priest in Solomon's time (1 Chronicles 6:9, 10; (Hebrew 5:35, 36)).

(5) A Benjamite recruit of David at Ziklag, but perhaps a Judean (1 Chronicles 12:4 (Hebrew 5)).

(6) A Gadite recruit of David at Ziklag (1 Chronicles 12:12 (Hebrew 13)).

(7) Hebrew has "Jehohanan," an Ephraimite chief (2 Chronicles 28:12).

(8) A returned exile (Ezra 8:12) = "Joannes" (1 Esdras 8:38, the King James Version "Johannes").

(9) Nehemiah 12:22, 23 = JEHOHANAN, (3).
