JOHANAN.  [Heb. Yohanan, abbreviated from Yehohanan = "(whom) Jehovah has bestowed," "gift of Jehovah" (Gesenius); "Jehovah is gracious" (Oxford Bible)].  [Jehohanan, John.] 

     (1) A Benjamite who joined David at Ziklag (1 Chron. xii. 4).
     (2) The eighth of the Gadites who did so.  He was made a captain in David's army (1 Chron. xii. 12, 14).
     (3) The father of the high priest Azariah, who officiated in the Temple, and was in the eighth generation before the captivity (1 Chron. vi. 10).  His father was another Azariah (verse 9).
     (4) The father of an Ephraimite, also called Azariah, in the days of Pekah and of Ahaz (2 Chron. xxviii. 12).
     (5) The eldest son of king Josiah (1 Chron. iii. 15).  He seems to have died young.
     (6) The son of Kareah.  On hearing that Nebuchadnezzar had appointed Gedaliah governor of Judæa, Johanan came with his men to submit to the new ruler (2 Kings xxv. 22, 23; Jer. xl. 8, 9).  He warned Gedaliah that Baalis, king of the Ammonites, had sent a certain Ishmael to murder him (xl. 13), and when the governor, neglecting the warning, was assassinated, led the force which went to avenge his death (xli. 11-15).  He afterwards counselled and carried out a removal of the Jewish remnant to Egypt, against the advice of Jeremiah (16-xliii. 13).
     (7) One of the seven sons of Elioenai, a descendant of Zerubbabel (1 Chron. iii. 24).
     (8) A son of Hakkatan, of the clan of Azgad.  With 110 males, he accompanied Ezra from Babylon (Ezra viii. 12).
     (9) The son of Eliashib.  Ezra went to Johanan's chamber, refusing to eat or drink, mourned over the sin of those who had contracted foreign marriages (Ezra x. 6).
     (10) The son of Tobiah the Ammonite, who married a Jewess, Meshullam, in the days of Nehemiah (Neh. vi. 18).
     (11) The same as Jonathan (11) (q.v.) (Neh. xii. 22). (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)
