Origin of the name THEUDAS.
Etymology of the name THEUDAS.
Meaning of the baby name THEUDAS.


THEUDAS.  Biblical.  Hunter makes this name Greek, from Hebrew Todah (see excerpt below).  But Fallows makes it an Aramaic form of Greek Theodotos (q.v.), meaning "God-given." (The Popular and Critical Bible Encyclopaedia and Scriptural Dictionary, Fallows, v.3, 1911).  Either way, it is probably a sacrifice to God of "praise" or "thanksgiving."

THEUDAS.  [Gr. from Heb. Todah = "confession," "thanksgiving," "praise" (?)].  [Thaddeus].
    A rebel who arose some time before the enrolment mentioned by St. Luke (Luke ii. 1-3).  He had 400 adherents, but he was slain and his followers scattered (Acts v. 36).  The difference of date shows that he was not the same Theudas as the one mentioned by Josephus (Antiq. XX. v. 1) as having professed his ability to cross the Jordan miraculously, and as having been captured and beheaded under the procuratorship of Cuspius Fadus (A.D. 44 to 46). (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)
