Jehoshaphat (High Priest)

According to Seder Olam Zuta, Jehoshaphat (Hebrew: יְהוֹשָׁפָט Yəhōšāp̄āṭ, "Yahweh has judged") was a High Priest of Israel, succeeding Jehoiarib and succeeded by Jehoiada.

However, the historian Josephus does not mention a Jehoshaphat,[1] and according to his account, the second High Priest after Joram (the chronological place of Jehoshaphat) was Pediah. Nor is a high priest named Jehoshaphat mentioned in the list of the Zadokite dynasty in 1 Chronicles 5:30–40 (6:4-15 in some translations) or elsewhere in the Tanakh.
