Benzelius was born at the Bentseby farm in the parish of Luleå in northern Sweden, son of the farmer and lay assessor (''nämndeman'') Henrik Jakobsson, and took a family name – rather than using the patronymic as was common in the Swedish peasantry – derived from the birthplace.
Benzelius was a typical representative of 17th century Swedish Lutheran orthodoxy, was careful not to deviate from established theological priciples, and lacked originality in his writing.
Of the seven sons of Benzelius, three later were appointed archbishops of Uppsala, one after the other: ErikBenzelius the Younger Erik (1675-1743, appointed 1742, but died before taking office), Jakob Benzelius Jakob (1683-1747, archbishop from 1744), and Henrik Benzelius Henrik (1689-1758, archbishop from 1747).
