Saint James the Apostle, Brother of God - Byzantine Icon

[Model: BYZ_st-11178]

Handmade Byzantine Icon of Saint James the Apostle, Brother of God.

Saint James the Apostle is called "Brother of God" because he was a son of Joseph, and by extension the brother of Jesus Christ, before his marriage to the Virgin Mary. Although he did not initially follow his brother's teaching, he finally believed in His power when He appeared before him, after the Resurrection.

From that moment, he devoted himself to the spread of Christianity and became the first Bishop of Jerusalem. According to tradition, Saint James the Apostle composed the first Divine Liturgy, which was later edited again by Basil the Great and Saint John Chrysostom.

His righteous leadership, as well as his steadfast faith and service to the Lord, angered the Jews, who beat him to death.

As the Lord's disciple, O righteous One, you received the Gospel, as Martyr, you have unwavering courage, as the Lord's brother, you have forthrightness, as Hierarch, intercession. Intercede with Christ our God, that our souls may be saved.
