In Matt. 10:3 mentioned as the father of James, after ‘James the son of Zebedee’. In Mark 2:14 he is cited as the father of Levi (usually identified as Matthew), and it is suggested that the mother of this James was Mary (Mark 15:40), whose husband was Clopas (Cleopas) (John 19:25), which would mean that Clopas and Alphaeus are the same person; but this string of hazardous identifications beloved by the Fathers (e.g. Chrysostom) is dismissed by modern scholarship.
