    Definitions for Matthew 10:3

    Publican - A tax collector.

    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 10:3

    Bartholomew - Many are of opinion that this was Nathanael, mentioned John 1:46, whose name was probably Nathanael bar Talmai, Nathanael, the son of Talmai: here, his own name is repressed, and he is called Bar Talmai, or Bartholomew, from his father.

    Matthew the publican - The writer of this history. See the preface.

    James the son of Alpheus - This person was also called Cleopas, or Clopas, Luke 24:18; John 19:25. He had married Mary, sister to the blessed Virgin, John 19:25.

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 10:3

    Philip and Bartholomew - These two were probably sent out together. Philip was a native of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. He is not the same as Philip the evangelist, mentioned in Acts 6:5; Acts 21:8. Bartholomew (literally, "the son of Tolmai").

    Thomas - Literally, "a twin," in reference to which he is also called "Didymus," John 11:16. For his character, see the notes at John 20:25. "And Matthew the publican." See the notes at Matthew 9:9. "James the son of Alpheus." See the note above.

    And Lebbeus, called Thaddeus - These two words have the same signification in Hebrew. Luke calls him "Judas," by a slight change from the name "Thaddeus." Such changes are common in all writings.

    Wesley's Notes on Matthew 10:3

    10:3 Lebbeus - Commonly called Judas, the brother of James.
