About Salome of Jerusalem

Salome of Jerusalem - The Mother of Prince Gjor Salome of Jerusalem, “The Proselyte” à Prince Gjor à Simon V Bar Gjor, the last King of the Jews we meet Salome of Jerusalem, the 3rd wife of Prince Mattat or Mattathias, who was called “The Proselyte”. She was an Idumean Herodian princess, who gave Prince Mattathas a third son called Prince Gjor(a). This Prince Gjor(a) was executed about the year of 45-46 CE, yet fathered a son called, Simon V Bar Gjor, who was the rising Davidian aspirant who fought for the throne of David after the Herodians were expelled in 66 CE.

The Final Destruction of Jerusalem Jewish anti-King Simon V Bar Gjora, became the last king of the Second Temple Era and the last king of the Province of Judah. It was Simon Bar Gjora, who was the nephew of Heli (Alexander III Helios) and Joseph of Arimathea. Here was the Simon Bar Gjora, who was the great uncle of Jesus the Nazarene (Yehoshua HaNotzri), to whom the Roman Procurator Pontius Pilate had a plaque that was written and placed upon the “tree” upon which He hung on the Mount of Olives with the words, the “King of the Jews”.

Simon V Bar Gjora was raised or later lived in the Galilean town of Gerasa. This village became the headquarters for his Jewish patriots. He entered the city of Jerusalem, as a Prince of David, by the invitation of the elders of Jerusalem.

There in Jerusalem, he was anointed while wearing the royal robes in the temple. He was later crowned as the “King of the Jews” in Jerusalem by the High Priest Matthias III, and later appointed the last High Priest Phannias in the year 69-70 CE.

The fact that King Simon wore a royal robe in the temple indicates that he had been anointed king. His whole reign was occupied with the 1st Jewish War against the Romans.

We last hear of Simon V Bar Gjora in the year of 73 CE when he was paraded through the city naked and in chains with his crushed and humiliated Jewish resistance army behind him in the famous “Triumphal Parade” through the city of Rome by the Roman General Titus. The final fate for the second cousin of Jesus the Messiah, Simon V Bar Gjora, was that he was crucified on a cross outside Rome.

How surreal the facts seem. We first see the nephew of Simon V Bar Gjor, Jesus the Nazarene, whose messiahship was rejected by the corrupted temple leadership of the powerful House of Hanan, with Ananias, the High Priest, Patriarch of the House of Hanan, and Caiphas the high priest, as the son-in-law.
