From Academic Kids

In Ayyavazhi mythology

According to Akilattirattu Ammanai,the holy text of Ayyavazhi religion and the source of Ayyavazhi mythology, Nathan is one among the Three God Heads, and is another name used to represent Brahma.

In Hebrew

Nathan (נתן "Gift", Standard Hebrew Natan, Tiberian Hebrew Nāṯān) is the name of at least six men, and perhaps as many as eight, with this name in the Hebrew Bible.

  • Probably the most significant and famous was a prophet in the time of King David and his wife Bathsheba , whose actions are described in the Books of Samuel, Kings and Chronicles, see especially 2 Samuel 7:2-17, 12:1-25. Nathan wrote histories of the reigns of both David and of Solomon, see 1 Chronicles 29:29 and 2 Chronicles 9:29, and was involved in the music of the temple, see 2 Chronicles 29:25. In 1 Kings 1:8-45 it is Nathan who tells the dying David of the plot of Adonijah to become king, resulting in Solomon's being proclaimed king instead.
  • In 1 Kings 4:5 Nathan is the name of the father of Azariah and Zabad, two of Solomon's chief administrators. It is implicit that these two have the same father, but whether he is one of the preceding two men, or a different man, is not clear.
  • In 2 Samuel 23:36 Nathan from Zobah is listed as the father of Igal.
  • In 1 Chronicles 11:38 yet another Nathan is the brother of Joel, one of David's elite warriors.
  • In Ezra 8:15-16 Nathan is the name of one of Ezra's companions who are sent to Iddo to ask for temple workers to replace the missing Levites.
  • In Ezra 10:38-44 Nathan son of Binnui is listed as one who divorced a foreign wife and sent her and her children away. This is possibly the same man as is mentioned in Ezra 8:15-16.
  • Nathan is the name of one of largest fashion houses in Belgium.
