      The "sudden" appearance of James/Ya'akov haTsaddik as the head
      of the N'tzarim following the passion is explained by apologetic
      historians by his being convinced of his brother's role and mission
      as the bareh d'alaha by the resurrection. The gospels mention
      little about James except to include him among the other siblings
      who apparently want to put Jesus on Prozac. Barring a real
      genuine resurrection, the only explanation for James' significant
      authority and presence in the group is that he was part of the
      movement all along.

      Has the possibility ever arisen in the literature that James may
      actually have been the prime mover of the group and his brother
      a follower..in other words, a *much* more important role..perhaps
      even seminal, to the pre-Pauline group?
