Hebrew Saints[edit]

King David of the United Monarchy of ancient Israel, as well as Kings Hezekiah and Josiah of the southern Kingdom of Judah, are traditionally considered to be in heaven in Catholic dogma;.[16][17] They are named as (Old Testament) saints by the Orthodox Church as testified by numerous calendars, services said for their intercession, as well as their use as patron saints. Some heterodox do not recognise them as saints as they lived before the time of Christ.
