STRONGS NT 256: Ἀλφαῖος
Ἀλφαῖος [WH Ἁλφ., see their Introductory § 408), -αίου, (חַלְפַּי cf. חַגַּי Ἀγγαῖος, Haggai 1:1), Alphæus or Alpheus;
1. the father of Levi the publican: Mark 2:14, see Λευί, 4.
2. the father of James the less, so called, one of the twelve apostles: Matthew 10:3; Mark 3:18; Luke 6:15; Acts 1:13. He seems to be the same person who in John 19:25 (cf. Matthew 27:56; Mark 15:40) is called Κλωπᾶς after a different pronunciation of the Hebrew חלפי accusative to which ח was changed into κ, as פֶּסַח φασέκ, 2 Chronicles 30:1. Cf. Ἰάκωβος, 2; [B. D. American edition under the word Alphæus; also Bp. Lightfoot's Commentary on Galatians, pp. 256, 267 (American edition, pp. 92, 103); Wetzel in Studien und Kritiken for 1883, p. 620f].
