Headword: Ναζιραῖος
Adler number: nu,10
Translated headword: Nazarite
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] he who is pleasing to God, and has been dedicated to him; the monk.[1]
One must note that when Claudius was emperor of Rome[2] Peter the Apostle ordained Evodius in Antioch,[3] and the formerly-known Nazarites and Galileans came to be called Christians.[4]
Greek Original:
Ναζιραῖος: ὁ θεῷ κεχαρισμένος, καὶ ἀφιερωμένος: ὁ μοναχός. ἰστέον δέ, ὅτι ἐπὶ Κλαυδίου βασιλέως Ῥώμης Πέτρου τοῦ ἀποστόλου χειροτονήσαντος Εὐόδιον ἐν Ἀντιοχείᾳ, μετωνομάσθησαν οἱ πάλαι λεγόμενοι Ναζιραῖοι καὶ Γαλιλαῖοι Χριστιανοί.

[2] 41-54 CE.
[3] First bishop of Antioch after Peter: Eusebius 3.22; see web address 1.
[4] For the Nazarites (Hebrew נְזִרִים /nəzɪrim/, "separate" or "consecrated") in the Septuagint see e.g. Numbers 6:1-21; also web address 2. In the present context (quoted from chi 523) there seems to be confusion between "Nazarite" (Hebrew נזיר /nazɪr/) and "Nazarene" (nu 9; from the Hebrew נצרת /natsɛrɛθ/, Nazareth). The confusion may go back to the Gospels: Matthew 2.23 "he shall be called a Ναζωραῖος " (cf. nu 12); but the interpretation of this passage is disputed, especially since the alleged quotation has no obvious source in the Old Testament.
