Easton's Bible Dictionary


the title assumed by the Roman emperors after Julius Caesar. In the New Testament this title is given to various emperors as sovereigns of Judaea without their accompanying distinctive proper names (Jhn 19:15; Act 17:7). The Jews paid tribute to Caesar (Mat 22:17), and all Roman citizens had the right of appeal to him (Act 25:11). The Caesars referred to in the New Testament are Augustus (Luk 2:1), Tiberius (3:1; 20:22), Claudius (Act 11:28), and Nero (Act 25:8; Phl 4:22).

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia


se'-zar (Kaisar): Originally the surname of the Julian gens (thus, Caius Julius Caesar); afterward a name borne by the Roman emperors. In the New Testament the name is definitely applied to Augustus (Lu 2:1, "Caesar Augustus"), to whom it belonged by adoption, and to Tiberius (Lu 3:1, "Tiberius Caesar"; compare Mt 22:17,21). The "Caesar" to whom Paul appealed (Ac 25:11,12,21) was Nero. The form is perpetuated in "Kaiser" and "Czar."

Smith's Bible Dictionary


always in the New Testament the Roman emperor, the sovereign of Judea (John 19:12; 19:15; Acts 17:7).
