James (James the Less)
Mark 3:18 -- "...and Andrew and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas and James the son of Alphaeus..."
James the Less has ORDER as his dominant spiritual attribute.
James was called "James the Less" because he was younger than James, the brother of John. Since he is spoken of as "James, the son of Alphaeus" in the Bible, scholars believe that this man, whose true identity is still questioned, may have been a cousin of Jesus.
James, who is said to have been the first bishop of Jerusalem, was highly respected for his knowledge of law, and he represents "law and order" in this series. Paul speaks of James the Less as being in Jerusalem as the first Bishop, and he wrote that he had visited James.
In the spiritual connotation, the attribute ORDER, as represented in the Disciple James the Less, means universal law and order, or Principle.
JAMES, SON OF ALPHAEUS
Known as James the Less, to distinguish him from James the Greater, son of Zebedee, but more likely because of his smaller stature than his relative importance. He, and Jude following, should not be confused with James and Jude (or Judas), the brothers of Jesus. Most commentators treat them as separate sets of brothers.
