Apostle James- brother of Jesus- who?- Church Do not Know!!

 Paul's letter tells that James brother of Jesus was the Head of Jerusalem Church.

Galatians 1: I did not go to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before I was. But, without waiting, I went away to Arabia. Later, I went back to the city of Damascus.
18 Three years later I went to Jerusalem to meet Peter. I stayed with him 15 days. 19 I met no other apostles—only James, the brother of the Lord.
Galatians 2:9  James, Peter, and John seemed to be the leaders. And they saw that God had given me this special gift of ministry, so they accepted Barnabas and me. They said to us, “We agree that you should go to those who are not Jews, and we will go to the Jews.” 
11 When Peter came to Antioch, he did something that was not right. I stood against him, because he was wrong. 12 This is what happened: When Peter first came to Antioch, he ate and associated with the non-Jewish people. But when some Jewish men came from James, Peter separated himself from the non-Jews. He stopped eating with them, because he was afraid of the Jews who believe that all non-Jewish people must be circumcised. 13 So Peter was a hypocrite. The other Jewish believers joined with him, so they were hypocrites too. Even Barnabas was influenced by what these Jewish believers did. 
Paul makes a list of Appearance stories of Resuscitated Jesus.
1 Corinthians 9:4  We have the right to eat and drink, don’t we? We have the right to bring a believing wife with us when we travel, don’t we? The other apostles and the Lord’s brothers and Peter all do this. And are Barnabas and I the only ones who must work to earn our living? 
1 Corinthians 15:5 and that he appeared to Peter and then to the twelve apostles. After that Christ appeared to more than 500 other believers at the same time. Most of them are still living today, but some have died. Then he appeared to James and later to all the apostles. Last of all, he appeared to me. I was different, like a baby born before the normal time.
Jesus had 4 brothers and few sisters.
Mark 6: 1Jesus left and went back to his hometown. His followers went with him. On the Sabbath day Jesus taught in the synagogue, and many people heard him. They were amazed and said, “Where did this man get this teaching? How did he get such wisdom? Who gave it to him? And where did he get the power to do miracles? 3 Isn’t he just the carpenter we know—Mary’s son, the brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And don’t his sisters still live here in town?” So they had a problem accepting him.
Mark 3: 16 These are the names of the twelve men Jesus chose: Simon (the one Jesus named Peter), 17 James and his brother John, the sons of Zebedee (the ones Jesus named Boanerges, which means “Sons of  Thunder”),  18 Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, ThomasJames, the son of Alphaeus, ThaddaeusSimon, the Zealot, 19 Judas Iscariot (the one who handed Jesus over to his enemies).

Controversy -James is sometimes identified with James, son of Alphaeus andJames the Less. There is disagreement about the exact relationship to Jesus.
In a third century letter pseudographically ascribed[3] to the second century Clement of Rome, James was called the “bishop of bishops, who rules Jerusalem, the Holy Assembly of Hebrews, and all assemblies everywhere”.[4] But like the rest of the early Christians, information about his life is scarce and ambiguous. In the non-canonical Gospel of Thomas,Jesus names James his successor: “The disciples said to Jesus, ‘We know that you will depart from us. Who will be our leader?’ Jesus said to them, “Where you are, you are to go to James the Just, for whose sake heaven and earth came into existence.'”

New Testament has a letter in James's Name which is addressed to 12 Clans of Hebrews 

James 1:  1 Greetings from Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and a brother of James. To those who have been chosen and are loved by God the Father and have been kept safe in Jesus Christ.

New Testament has a letter in Jude's in another brother's Name. 

Jude1:1 Greetings from Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and a brother of James. 

Martin Luther. the protestant bishop wanted to re-organise NT Books and felt 4 books namely- James, Jude, Hebrews and Revelations to be removed. Due to pressure it was stopped.’s_canon

The Church Traditional Word of mouth stories put James and Jude as the two blood brothers of Jesus as given earlier. Testament. This James is son of Alphaeus- church try to say Could be Cousins for which there is no proof. 

The Greek word in Mark 6:3 for brothers and sisters that are used to designate the relationship between and the relatives have meaning of full blood brothers and sisters in the Greek speaking world at the Evangeslist’s time and would naturally be taken by his Greek readers in this Sense. -New Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol-9 Page-337; fom Catholic University  -America. 
There is another story in Gospel Tales which says that Brothers of Jesus did not believe him/

 John 7:1After this, Jesus traveled around the country of Galilee. He did not want to travel in Judea, because the Jewish leaders there wanted to kill him. It was time for the Jewish Festival of Shelters. So his brothers said to him, “You should leave here and go to the festival in Judea. Then your followers there can see the miracles you do. If you want to be well known, you must not hide what you do. So, if you can do such amazing things, let the whole world see you do them.” Jesus’ brothers said this because even they did not believe in him. 

 If James and Jude are not brothers as per above- then who the 12 Apostles are is unknown. All are just tales filled up. ஏசுவின் சகோதரர் இருவர் அப்போஸ்தலர் என்றால் யோவான் சுவி தவறு. 
OXFORD Dictionary of Saints -1978 
 JAMES THE LESS: The sons of Alphaues is often but not certainly, identified with the James whose mother stood by Christ on the cross and also with James, the brother of the Lord, who saw the risen Christ and is often called the first Bishop of Jerusalem, He is also sometimes identified with Author of the Epistle of the St.JamesIf Non of this identification is correct, we know Practically nothing about James the Less.// Page – 208.
When was Letter James written?
Oxford  Dictionary of Christian Church Even if the Epistle is not the work of St.Jamesit seems likely that it was composed by A.D.95At any rate it is not later than A.D.150. // Page 712
Church was controlling the world and Bible was under its Jail, which got released due to Protestant Fight, Rev.Tyndale was burnt in Stake for Publishing English Bible.
Thomas Paine was to be arrested and executed for writing "Age of Reason" criticising Bible. His age saved him.

Today Paine's ideas comes from Every Biblical 
researcher who looks truly. 
Jerusalem church was Jewish only as per records, and the Disciples must have lived together for 40 years and we know nothing historically about any body.  

Acts 16:The believers in the cities of Lystra and Iconium had only good things to say about him. Paul wanted Timothy to travel with him, but all the Jews living in that area knew that his father was a Greek. So Paul circumcised Timothy to please the Jews.

Acts 21:18 The next day Paul went with us to visit James, and all the elders were there. 
 23 So we will tell you what to doFour of our men have made a vow to God. 24 Take these men with you and share in their cleansing ceremony. Pay their expenses so that they can shave their heads. This will prove to everyone that the things they have heard about you are not true. They will see that you obey the Law of Moses in your own life.

 This story event can be dated 25- 30 years after the death of Jesus, they maintained Jewish Laws. 

Mark 4:22Everything that is hidden will be made clear. Every secret thing will be made known.
Luke 16: 10 Whoever can be trusted with small things can also be trusted with big things. Whoever is dishonest in little things will be dishonest in big things too. 

Blind belief base on Superstions are not worth.

.Proverbs 29:26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool; But who so walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.

New Testament is a book of Tales of a Dead man who believed that the World would end in his Lifetime.
