Although he is mentioned ten times in the New Testament, we do not know a lot about this James. We do know that his father's name was Alphaeus and that his mother's name was Mary. He is commonly called “James the less,” according to Mark 15:40. It is unclear whether this is because he was shorter or younger than James, son of Zebedee. We know nothing about his character or individual actions. We do know that he was in the upper room in Acts 1:12-13. After that mention, we lose him in history.
