About Mattan (Yacov) ben Mattan

Joseph was born about 29 BCE, to the “Nasi” or Prince of Israel Jacob son of Mattan (Yacov ben Mattan). He was caught in the cross-fire of the pograms that were leveled against any potential royal aspirant to the throne that the aging, paranoid, and progressively demented Idumean King of Judea, Herod, called “The Great”. Joseph’s father was a newly recognized Patriarch of Israel and one that King Herod trusted to be his emissary to implement with faithfulness a special mission to the one who he predicted would become the next ruler of the Roman world, the future Caesar Augustus.
