THERE turns out no reliable cause to doubt, and each cause to think, that the author of this solemn but comforting letter is the “Judas, the brother of James,” pointed out within the record of the apostles, as given two times via Luke (Luke 6:16; Acts 1:13), yet who's referred to as via Matthew “Lebbeus, whose surname used to be Thaddeus” (Matt. 10:3), and by way of Mark easily Thaddeus (Mark 3:18). John distinguishes him in a distinct means by means of conversing of him as “Judas, now not Iscariot” (John 14:22). it really is obtrusive, from the best way Paul writes of this James, the son of Alpheus, that he used to be a really close to relation, in accordance with the flesh, to our Saviour, the Lord Jesus. After stating his first interview with Peter, he says: “But different of the apostles observed I none, retailer James the Lord’s brother” (Gal 1:19). James the good, the son of Zebedee, had met a martyr’s dying previous to the stopover at the following spoke of; hence it turns into simple that James the fewer is intended. The time period “the Lord’s brother” doesn't inevitably suggest all that it's going to, had the epistle been written in our language; nonetheless it implies very shut courting.

Gladly he owns Him as God’s anointed, his Lord and grasp. one other writing of him may possibly, out of courtesy, have used an analogous time period as Paul utilized to Jude’s brother; yet writing of himself, he's easily the “slave of Jesus Christ.” James speaks of himself within the comparable way—“a bondman of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ” (Jas. 1:1).
