Jotham, son of Gideon
Jotham is the youngest of Gideon's 70 sons.
When “the citizens of Shechem and the whole house of Millo” were gathered together “by the plain of the pillar” (i.e., the stone set up by Joshua, 24:26; compare Genesis 35:4) “that was in Shechem, to make Abimelech king,” from one of the heights of Mount Gerizim he protested against their doing so in the earliest parable, that of the bramble-king. His words then spoken were prophetic.
There came a recoil in the feelings of the people toward Abimelech, and then a terrible revenge, in which many were slain and the city of Shechem was destroyed by Abimelech (Judges 9:45). Having delivered his warning, Jotham fled to Beer from the vengeance of Abimelech (9:7-21).
also known as: Joatham (Matt. 1:9)
As during his last years Uzziah was excluded from public life on account of his leprosy, his son, then 25 years of age, administered for 7 years the affairs of the kingdom in his father's stead (2 Chronicles 26:21; 26:23; 27:1).
He ruled in the fear of God, and his reign was prosperous.
