More > Anglicized as "Jacob"), was an early leader of the Jerusalem Church of the Apostolic Age, to which Paul was also affiliated. He died in Martyrdom in 62 or 69 AD.

Roman Catholic tradition generally holds that this James is to be identified with James, son of Alphaeus, and James the Less. It is agreed by most that he should not be confused with James, son of Zebedee< Less

Hope is the motive of all human effort and hope in God is its only true form. Enos the hoper was rewarded with a name which means that he is a true man. Enoch's repentance is rewarded by his "transference" away from the common herd to the isolation which the converted need. Noah the just was saved from the flood and made the founder of renewed mankind. The second Trinity, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, represent the true religion which despises vanity.< Less
