Alphæ´us, father of James the Less (Matthew 10:3; Luke 6:15), and husband of Mary, the sister of our Lord's mother (John 19:25); for which reason James is called 'the Lord's brother' [BROTHER]. By comparing John 19:25, with Luke 24:10, and Matthew 10:3, it appears that Alphaeus is the same person as Cleophas; Alphaeus being his Greek, and Cleophas his Hebrew or Syriac name.
Alphæus, the father of the evangelist Levi or Matthew (Mark 2:14).
