(joh ay' nuhn) Greek transliteration of Hebrew name Johanan. See Luke 3:27 ). KJV reads Joanna. Some interpreters think his father Rhesa does not represent a personal name but is a transliteration of the Aramaic word for prince, a title for Zerubbabel. Joanan would then be the Hananiah of 1 Chronicles 3:19 .
