Apostle James son of Alphaeus Apostle Simon the Zealot Apostle Judas son of James video. The point somewhat uniquely special with James the son of Alphaeus is his obscurity. There just isn’t anything specifically recorded about him. We don’t have any specific statements by James the son of Alphaeus. He was not a person of renown, but as we’ve learned, God doesn’t depend on “superstars. The Zealots hated Romans. Zealots were assassins responsible for terrorist acts. They were known for concealing a thin short sharp sword, silently slipping up on a Roman soldier (or whomever they wanted to assassinate), and running the sword into the back through the heart. That was Simon the Zealot. When studying Judas the son of James, we see an interesting truth. All the writers desperately attempt to change his identity. Matthew and Mark don’t use the name Judas for this apostle in their gospels. John writes, “Judas, not Judas Iscariot” in his gospel. The name “Judas” became nauseous.

The apostles I want to talk about today all have explanations added to their names. As Doug said, the further one gets from Jesus, the more explanation needed to identify if they are truly followers of Jesus. How much explanation does it take in your life to prove to someone you really are a Christian? So, it’s James son of Alphaeus, not James the brother of John. It’s Simon who was called the Zealot, not Simon Peter. It’s Judas son of James, not Judas Iscariot. He really didn’t want to be confused with Judas Iscariot? (continue sermon notes)
