THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES - Chapter 15 - Verse 13

Verse 13. James answered. James the Less, son of Alpheus. See Barnes "Ac 12:1".


Hearken unto me. This whole transaction shows that Peter had no such authority in the church as the Papists pretend, for otherwise his opinion would have been followed without debate. James had an authority not less than that of Peter. It is possible that he might have been next in age, (comp. 1 Co 15:7;) and it seems morally certain that he remained for a considerable part of his life in Jerusalem, Ac 12:17; 21:18 Ga 1:19; 2:9,12.
