Judah Kyriakos, also known popularly as Judas of Jerusalem, was the great grandson of Jude, brother of Jesus, and the last Jewish Bishop of Jerusalem, according to Epiphanius of Salamis[1] and Eusebius of Caesarea.[2]

Though the start of his period as bishop of Jerusalem is not known, Judas is said to have lived beyond the Bar Kokhba's revolt (132-136), though Marcus was appointed bishop of Aelia Capitolina in 135 by the Metropolitan of Caesarea.
