      n : (New Testament) supposed brother of St James; one of the
          Apostles who is invoked in prayer when a situation seems
          hopeless [syn: Jude, Saint Jude, St. Jude, Judas]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    breast, the name of one of the apostles (Mark 3:18), called
    "Lebbaeus" in Matt. 10:3, and in Luke 6:16, "Judas the brother
    of James;" while John (14:22), probably referring to the same
    person, speaks of "Judas, not Iscariot." These different names
    all designate the same person, viz., Jude or Judas, the author
    of the epistle.
