James bar-Zebedee, also known as James the Greater, was one of Jesus' twelve apostles. He was the brother of John and the son of Zebedee. With John, he was also known as one of the "sons of Thunder." Catholic tradition states that his mother was Salome.

Several events were witnessed only by Simon Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, including the Transfiguration (Matthew 17), the raising of Jairus's daughter (Mark 5), and the agony in the Garden of Gethsemane (Matthew 26). Jmaes the Greater was beheaded by Herod Agrippa during Passover in 44 AD.

He is known as James the greater to distinguish him from another apostle, James the Less, the son of Alphaeus.
