Sheshbazzar

SHESHBAZZAR (shĕsh-bāz'êr, Heb. sheshbatstsar). A prince of the Jews when Cyrus made a decree permitting the Jews to go back to Jerusalem to rebuild the house of God. He was made governor, was given the sacred vessels of the temple that had been taken at the Captivity, and helped lay the foundation of the temple (Ezra.1.8, Ezra.1.11; Ezra.5.14, Ezra.5.16). He may be the same as Zerubbabel.
