Meyer, John a noted Dutch theologian and Hebraist, was born about the middle of the 17th century. He flourished as professor of theology at the University of Haderwyk, and died in 1725. His works are of great value to the exegete. Those most worthy of notice are his Uxor Christiana, sive de conjugio
inter duos, deque incestu et divortiis, dissertationes tres (Amst. 1688, 4to); Tractatus de temporibus et fasti diebus Hebraeorum (Amst. 1724); and his edition of Seder Olam, a Hebrew chronicle of great esteem among the Jews, usually attributed to rabbi Jose ben-Chilpeta.
