    Notes 
    • Personal name meaning, supplanter. James, the son of Zebedee and brother of John (Matt 4:21; 10:2; Mark 1:19; 3:17; Luke 5:10). As one of the twelve disciples (Acts 1:13), he, with Peter and John, formed Jesus’ innermost circle of associates. These three were present when Jesus raised Jairus’ daughter (Mark 5:37; Luke 8:51), witnessed the transfiguration (Matt 17:1; Mark 9:2; Luke 9:28), and were summoned by Christ for support during His agony in Gethsemane (Matt 26:36-37; Mark 14:32-34).

      Perhaps because of James’ and John’s fiery fanaticism, evidenced as they sought to call down fire from heaven on the Samaritan village refusing to receive Jesus and the disciples (Luke 9:52-54), Jesus called the brothers "Boanerges" or "sons of thunder" (Mark 3:17). James’ zeal was revealed in a more selfish manner as he and John (their mother, on their behalf, in Matt 20:20-21) sought special positions of honor for the time of Christ’s glory (Mark 10:35-40). They were promised, however, only a share in His suffering.

      Indeed, James was the first of the twelve to be martyred (Acts 12:2). His execution (about A.D. 44), by order of King Herod Agrippa I of Judea, was part of a larger persecution in which Peter was arrested (Acts 12:1-3).
