James The Elder: Apostles of Jesus Christ Bible Study
This is the Third bible study of a twelve week bible study called the "Twelve Apostles-Foundation of Christ's Bride (The Holy City)". Each week we will study one of the twelve apostles which were Jesus Christ's apostles and referred to as the foundation of Christ's Holy City. In the Revelations chapter 21, one of seven angel's came to John telling him that he would show him the bride, the Lamb's (Jesus Christ) wife. He then showed the apostle the Holy Jerusalem of heaven. A description is given, part of that description reveals that the twelve disciples names would represent the twelve foundations of this Holy city. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb" Revelations 21:14 The Apostles play an important role in the Holy City The apostles have significant importance as the foundation of the Holy City so it makes sense that we should know who they were, what they taught, why it was important, and how they died. This Second study is on the Apostle Bartholomew one of Jesus Christ's disciples (apostles). About James the Elder There were two Apostles names James. James the Elder and James the Lesser (younger). What we know about James the Elder from biblical studies and historical references are:
He was the son of Zebedee and Salone
Brother of John the Apostle
Lived in Bethsaida, Capernaum, and Jerusalem
James the Elder taught in Jerusalem and Judea
He was a member of the "Inner Circle" and as such was allowed to do things which were not permitted for others
.James and his brother John were inseparable
James name does not appear in the New Testament alone but always in combination with his brother John. There is not a lot of biblical information available about James the Elder. He appeared to be a man of great courage, forgiving, without jealousy as he lived in his brother John's shadow. Read:
