James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes scattered among the nations: Greetings.
Who is THIS James?
· In the New Testament, multiple “Jameses” from which we can choose. For example:
1. James the son of Zebedee.
2. James the son of Alphaeus.
3. James the father of Judas (not Iscariot).
4. James, the half-brother of Jesus
** Most agree…James is brother of Jesus.
c.f.: This is affirmed throughout Scripture…
· Mark 6:3, Matthew 13:55 – Jesus had brothers.
· Acts 1:14 – After resurrection, Mary and Jesus’ brothers were with disciples
