His story is filled with questions, controversy, and differing points of view that scholars have trouble agreeing upon. He was noted to be an Apostle of Christ and trusted member of Jesus’s inner circle. Yet some say he was not even part of the original 12 Apostles, and didn’t adhere to Jesus’s ideologies or doctrines until much later, long after Jesus was said to have died. In fact, it was the witnessing of the Resurrection of Christ that sparked the Apostle Saint James’s conversion. In addition to witnessing two other significant events, this transfiguration is what brought James into the adherence of Christian teachings.
