BARACHIAH băr’ ə kī’ ə (Βαραχίας, G974; KJV BARACHIAS). The father of Zechariah, who was murdered between the sanctuary and the altar (Matt 23:35).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

Father of Zachariah who was murdered between the sanctuary and the altar. It is possible that reference is made to Zechariah, the son of Jehoiada (2Ch 24:20 ff), whom Matthew by mistake calls "Z., the son of Barachiah." Lu 11:51 omits the name of the father of Z. (compare Zahn’s Kommentar, 649, note).
