"The dictionary states that a zealot is 'one who is zealous or full of zeal, especially to an extreme or excessive degree; one carried away by excess of zeal; a fanatic.' Zealot is also defined as 'one of a Jewish sect which struggled openly against the Roman Rule in Palestine.' This was Simon - an open fighter for a cause he felt was right, a cause which would place an Israelite on the throne of Israel. What better way to show this zealous Simon than to place a sword in his hand!
