According to Seder Olam Zuta, Jehoshaphat (Hebrew: יְהוֹשָׁפָטYəhōšāp̄āṭ, "Yahweh has judged") was a High Priest of Israel, succeeding Jehoiarib and succeeded by Jehoiada.

However, the historian Josephus does not mention a Jehoshaphat,[1] and according his account, the second High Priest after Joram (the chronological place of Jehoshaphat) was Pediah. A high priest named Jehoshaphat is also not mentioned in the list of the Zadokite dynasty (1 Chronicles 5:30-40, 6:4-15 in some translations) or elsewhere in the Tanakh.
