Dear Friends, when the NT alludes to the patriarch Jacob it renders the name IAKWB (eg. Heb.11:21). However, when it mentions James, it uses IAKWBOS (eg. Matt.13:55; James 1:1) Why does the NT render this name differently by adding OS to the end of IAKWB thus giving us IAKWBOS? Why did it not simply use IAKWB?
