= Judas. Among the apostles there were two who bore this
(1) Judas ( Jude 1:1 ; Matthew 13:55 ; John 14:22 ; Acts 1:13 ), called also Lebbaeus
or Thaddaeus ( Matthew 10:3 ; Mark 3:18 ); and
(2) Judas Iscariot ( Matthew 10:4 ; Mark 3:19 ). He who is called "the brother
of James" ( Luke 6:16 ), may be the same with the Judas surnamed Lebbaeus. The
only thing recorded regarding him is in John 14:22 .

called also LEBBEUS and THADDEUS, Authorized Version
"Judas the brother of James," one of the twelve apostles. The name of Jude occurs
only once in the Gospel narrative. ( John 14:22 ; Matthew 10:3 ; Mark 3:18 ; Luke
6:16 ; John 14:22 ; Acts 1:13 ) Nothing is certainly known of the later history
of the apostle. Tradition connects him with the foundation of the church at Edessa.
