St James TG History
The feast day of James the Greater in the Roman Catholic Church commemorates the life of Jesus' disciple. He was considered to be one of the inner circle of Jesus' followers because he witnessed the transfiguration of Christ and the raising of Jairus' daughter from the dead.
James was among the three disciples to see the transfiguration of Jesus. He, Peter and John accompanied Jesus on a mountain where Jesus becomes radiant and is transfigured to light. The prophets Moses and Elijah appear and speak with Jesus (Matthew 17:1-9, Mark 9:2-8, Luke 9:28-36).
Of Jesus' 12 disciples, two were named James. This celebration centers on James the son of Zebedee, also known as James the greater. It is thought that he may have been older than James the Lesser, who may have been the brother of Jesus.
