(grace or gift of God) (in Revised Version spelled Joanan).
The name of a woman, occurring twice in (Luke 8:3; 24:10) but evidently denoting the same person, (A.D. 28-30.) In the first passage she is expressly stated to have been "wife of Chuza, steward of Herod," that is, Antipas, tetrarch of Galilee.
* See other occurrences of the same term: Joanna.
