Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Simon Thassi (died 135 BC) was the second son of Mattathias and thus a member of the Hasmonean family. The name Thassi has an uncertain meaning (the Director, the Guide, the Man of Counsel, and the Zealous are all possible meanings of the term). He took part in the Jewish revolt against the Seleucid Empire led by his brothers, Judas Maccabaeus and Jonathan Maccabaeus. He became the first prince of the Hebrew Hasmonean Dynasty. He reigned from 142 to 135 BC. The Hasmonean Dynasty was founded by a resolution, adopted in 141 BC, at a large assembly of the priests and the people and of the elders of the land, to the effect that Simon should be their leader and high priest forever, until there should arise a faithful prophet (1 Maccabees xiv. 41).
