Who was Ben Yeka


Who was *בן יקא?

The זהר פרשת בא says, שלמה המלך had seven names

**שלמה , ידידיה , *אגור , בן יקא  , איתיאל , למואל , קהלת


The משנת חכמים ***  ( s 332-334) writes,

“When the זהר was originally discovered, it wasn’t  set up on Parshas Hashavua.  The אדם גדול who discovered the זהר  was the one who organized it according to the  Parshas Hashavua."

It is unknown  why he placed certain מאמרים that have no שייכות to the Parsha  in that particular Parsha.

He must have had a reason על פי סוד 
Hence ,  Shlomo's seven names appear 
in זהר פרשת בא



*The  (ספר האגור (ר'יעקב בן ר' יהודה לנדא writes the Hakdama

with the pen name אגור  בן יקא explaining himself that

he is about to spew out (publicize) all he has

gathered (see Rashi & Metzudas Mishlei 30:1)

**According to the Midrash only 3 names  שלמה  ידידיה קהלת   

 *** מהר"ם חגיז
