James ‘The Less’

James ‘The Less’
(first century)
   Apostle.
   James is described in the list of the twelve disciples as the son of Alphaeus. The title ‘The Less’ comes from mark 15:40, but there is no definite evidence that this James is the same as the son of Alphaeus. There have been attempts to identify him with James the lord’s brother, but this seems unlikely. Nothing further is known of him. The Four Gospels.
