Apostle James Alphaeus (Koufos) Icon - S628

Ex. Tax


St. James Alphaeus, is also known as “St. James the Less,” meaning the smaller or younger, to distinguish him from the second apostle James, the brother of John. Unlike the brother of John, St. James Alphaeus is not often mentioned in the Gospels.

After the Ascension St. James became the Bishop of Jerusalem, and was martyred in Jerusalem as well. His troparion describes him as a saint who “didst receive the fiery grace of the Spirit and didst shine on the world like the morning star; thou didst dispel the pagan night of idols.”

Like all of the Apostles and Evangelists, and all holy people portrayed in icons, St. James’ face and beard are painted according to iconographic tradition. He wears red and blue, and holds a scroll that represents the Word of God he acted in fulfilling and spreading.

This icon was painted by Fr. Theodore Koufos of blessed memory. Offered by permission.
