The term Zealot technically applies to a person who belonged to the party or “philosophy” that began in Gamla, but it is often applied to all Jewish rebels who resisted Roman authority and Jewish collaborators.
For generations, the Zealots violently resisted the emperor’s authority. They longed for a messiah who would lead a great holy army, destroy their Roman overlords, and reestablish Jewish rule in Israel.
