Meaning of the baby name BARABBAS.


BARABBAS (Βαραββᾶς).  Biblical.  [N.T. Greek Barabbas, Aramaic Bar Abba = "son of a father"].

A robber who had made an insurrection in which he had committed murder.  He was "a notable prisoner" when Jesus was arrested.  Pilate, anxious that Jesus should be released, but not prepared to run any risk to effect his purpose, offered the Jews the option of releasing Jesus or Barabbas, believing that they could not possibly be so lost to shame as to choose Barabbas; but he was disappointed in the result, for the people, incited by the chief priests, clamoured for the release of Barabbas, and then for the crucifixion of Jesus (Matt. xxvii. 16, 17, 20, 21, 26; Mark xv. 7, 11, 15; Luke xxiii. 18; John xviii. 40). (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)
