“But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord's brother.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:19 But other of the apostles I saw none, save James the brother (that is, the kinsman) of the Lord - Therefore when Barnabas is said to have brought him into the apostles, #Acts 9:27|, only St. Peter and St James are meant.
Ga 1:19 But other of the apostles saw I none. The other apostles were probably absent among churches of Judea (Ac 9:31). Save James, the Lord's brother. Not James the brother of John, an apostle, but James, "the brother of the Lord", named in Ac 12:17 15:13 21:18. This James was not one of the Twelve, but rose to great dignity and influence in the church at Jerusalem. He is called here "the brother of the Lord", to distinguish him from "James, the son of Zebedee" (Mt 4:21 10:2 Mr 1:19 3:17), and "James, the son of Alphaeus" (Mt 10:3 Mr 3:18 Lu 6:15 Ac 1:13), who were of the Twelve.
