Canaanite means in the bible: Matt. Matt. Luke 6:15, Acts 1:13, also refers to Simon as a Zelote. This is likely to be a reference the Zealots established by Judas, Gamala who were openly against the census of Cyrenius. Other instances of Canaanite include land of origin through Canaan (son of Ham) and Abr. 1:21.
