There are lots of Jameses mentioned in the Gospels, including two among Jesus' twelve apostles. In this episode of Catholic Saints, Dr. James Prothro (another James!) and Mary McGeehan talk about the life and witness of the first bishop of Jerusalem. They also discuss the Letter of James and how Catholics today can follow the heroic example of St. James the Lesser.
For more on St. James and St. Paul, read Dr. Prothro's new book: A Pauline Theology of Justification: Forgiveness, Friendship, and Life in Christ.
