    • Personal name meaning, large hearted or courageous. He appears to have been known also by the name Lebbaeus Thaddaeus (Matt. 10:3; Mark 3:18). His only recorded words are found in (John 14:22).

      Matt 10:3, Mark 3:18

      He is sometimes identified with Jude, the brother of Jesus, but is clearly distinguished from Judas Iscariot, the apostle who betrayed Jesus prior to his crucifixion. Catholic writer Michal Hunt suggests that Judas Thaddaeus became known as Jude after early translators of the New Testament from Greek into English sought to distinguish him from Judas Iscariot and subsequently abbreviated his forename.[6] Most versions of the New Testament in languages other than English and French refer to Judas and Jude by the same name.[7]

      The Armenian Apostolic Church honors Thaddeus along with Saint Bartholomew as its patron saints. In the Roman Catholic Church, he is the patron saint of desperate cases and lost causes.

      New Testament:
      Jude is clearly distinguished from Judas Iscariot, another apostle and later the betrayer of Jesus. Both Jude and Judas are translations of the name ?????? in the Koine Greek language original text of the New Testament, which in turn is a Greek variant of Judah (Y'hudah), a name which was common among Jews at the time. In most Bibles in languages other than English and French, Jude and Judas are referred to by the same name.

      Aside from Judas Iscariot, the New Testament mentions Jude or Judas six times, in four different contexts:

      1. "Jude of James", one of the twelve apostles (Luke 6:16 and Acts 1:13);

      2. "Judas, (not Judas Iscariot)", apparently an apostle (John 14:22);

      3. the brother of Jesus (Matthew 13:55, Mark 6:3);

      4. the writer of the Epistle of Jude, who identifies himself as "the brother of James" (Jude 1).

      The first two are almost always thought to be the same person, although theologian Raymond Brown saw the identification as uncertain. The latter two are also usually thought to be the same person, though this too is not certain; see Epistle of Jude.

      Catholic tradition generally holds all of these four to be the same person; while Protestants generally believe 1&2 to be one person, and 3&4 to be a one person, but different from 1&2.
