Posts Tagged ‘James the Less’

The 12 Disciples were normally in the following order:

  1. Simon (Peter)
  2. Andrew (Peter’s Brother)
  3. James (the greater)
  4. John (James’ Brother)
  5. Philip
  6. Bartholomew (Nathanael)
  7. Thomas (Didymus)
  8. Matthew (Levi)
  9. James (the less)
  10. Thaddaeus (Judas)
  11. Simon (the Canaanite)
  12. Judas Iscariot (the traitor)

Today we will cover three disciples. The first isĀ James, the less. It is not known if James was called less because of his size, his age, or social standing. Also I will cover the life and ministry of Thaddaeus, who was also named Judas and the disciple Simon, who was a Zealot.
