Jason

(fl. 2nd cent, BCE)
   Israelite high priest. He bribed Antiochus IV to depose his brother, Onias III, so that he could become high priest. But later he was dismissed from the high priesthood by the king, and Menelaus, who offered Antiochus IV a large sum of money, was appointed instead. Jason's Hellenizing policy contributed to the Hasmonean revolt (166-164 BCE), which freed Judea from the rule of the Seleucids.
