Meaning of the baby name MATTHIAS.

  

MATTHIAS (Ματθίας).  Contracted form of Greek Mattathias (q.v.), from Hebrew Mattathyah (q.v.), meaning "gifts of Jehovah."

MATTHIAS.  One of two Christians regarded by the early Church as suitable persons to make up the number of the apostles diminished by the apostasy and death of Judas Iscariot.  The question of the relative fitness of the two candidates was submitted to lot, which was in favour of Matthias, who was at once numbered with the other eleven apostles (Acts i. 21-26).  Nothing more is known of his history. (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)
