Church calendar for May 13 – Memorial Day of the Apostle James

On Wednesday, May 13, 2022, the church honors the Apostle James.

The Apostle James was one of the 12 apostles of Jesus Christ, and also one of those (also the Apostle John the Theologian – his brother and the Apostle Peter), to whom the Son of God told all his secrets.

After the descent of the Holy Spirit, the Apostle James preached in many countries, in particular, in Spain. Then he returned to Jerusalem. He boldly and openly taught people about Jesus Christ, who was the Savior of the World. He also told the words of the Holy Scriptures, opened the scribes and Pharisees, reproached them in despair.

The Jews could not resist the apostolic word, so they hired the philosopher-sorcerer Hermogenes for money, who could enter into a dispute with the apostle James. The sorcerer instead of himself sent his disciple Philip to Jacob, but after a conversation with the apostle, he believed in Jesus Christ. Then Hermogenes himself came and also became convinced of God’s power. He received holy baptism and burned all his books.

Unbelieving Jews then convinced the ruler Herod Agrippa that Jacob should be captured and sentenced to death. The apostle listened calmly to his death sentence and continued to speak about Christ. One of the scammers, Josiah, was struck by the boldness of Jacob and immediately believed in Christ. And when the apostle was taken to the execution, he fell at his feet and began to beg for forgiveness. The apostle embraced him and said: “Peace be with you and forgiveness.” He was executed along with Jacob.
