Ἰαμβρῆς, , and Ἰαννῆς [cf. Buttmann, 20 (18)], Jambres (for which the Vulg. seems to have read Μαμβρῆς, as in the Babylonian Talmud tract. Menach. c. 9 in the Gemara; cf. Buxtorf, Lex. Talm., p. 945f [p. 481f, Fischer edition]), and Jannes, two Egyptian magicians who in the presence of Pharaoh imitated the miracles of Aaron in order to destroy his influence with the king: 2 Timothy 3:8 (cf. Exodus 7:11f). The author of the Epistle derived their names from the tradition of the Talmudists and the Rabbins, [cf. B. D. article Jannes and Jambres]. These Magi are mentioned not only in the tract of the Babylonian Talmud just referred to, but also in the Targ. of Jonath. on Exodus 7:11; the book Sohar on Numbers 22:22; Numenius περὶ τἀγαθοῦ in Origen contra Celsus 4, 51; Eusebius, praep. evang. 9, 8; Evang. Nicod. c. 5, and other writings enumerated by Thilo in his Cod. apocr., p. 552f; [and Wetstein on 2 Timothy, the passage cited; Holtzmann ibid., p. 140f].
