(in the spelling of this word h is inserted by mistake from Latin MSS.), rather Cleopas, which is the Greek form of the word, while Clopas is the Aramaic form. In John 19:25 the Authorized Version reads, "Mary, the wife of Clopas." The word "wife" is conjecturally inserted here. If "wife" is rightly inserted, then Mary was the mother of James the Less, and Clopas is the same as Alphaeus ( Matthew 10:3 ; 27:56 ).
the whole glory
Revised Version Clopas, the husband of Mary the sister of Virgin Mary. ( John 19:25 ) He was probably dead before Jesus ministry began, for his wife and children constantly appear with Josephs family in the time of our Lords ministry. --Englishmans Cyc. [CLEOPAS; ALPHAEUS]
