= Judas. Among the apostles there were two who bore this name, (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 .
