From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    (1.) The son of Zebedee and Salome; an elder brother of John the
    apostle. He was one of the twelve. He was by trade a fisherman,
    in partnership with Peter (Matt. 20:20; 27:56). With John and
    Peter he was present at the transfiguration (Matt. 17:1; Mark
    9:2), at the raising of Jairus's daughter (Mark 5:37-43), and in
    the garden with our Lord (14:33). Because, probably, of their
    boldness and energy, he and John were called Boanerges, i.e.,
    "sons of thunder." He was the first martyr among the apostles,
    having been beheaded by King Herod Agrippa (Acts 12:1, 2), A.D.
    44. (Comp. Matt. 4:21; 20:20-23).
      (2.) The son of Alphaeus, or Cleopas, "the brother" or near
    kinsman or cousin of our Lord (Gal. 1:18, 19), called James "the
    Less," or "the Little," probably because he was of low stature.
    He is mentioned along with the other apostles (Matt. 10:3; Mark
    3:18; Luke 6:15). He had a separate interview with our Lord
    after his resurrection (1 Cor. 15:7), and is mentioned as one of
    the apostles of the circumcision (Acts 1:13). He appears to have
    occupied the position of head of the Church at Jerusalem, where
    he presided at the council held to consider the case of the
    Gentiles (Acts 12:17; 15:13-29: 21:18-24). This James was the
    author of the epistle which bears his name.
