Study on James

James, a key leader in the Jerusalem church and oldest half brother of Jesus, wrote this epistle to Jewish believers who had been scattered by persecution. Out of compassion, he confronted Christians to test the quality and consistency of their faith. In his short and powerful book, the apostle James gives us practical guidance on issues that measure true and living faith. Through an emphasis on spiritual fruitfulness, James calls all believers to live a life that demonstrates genuine, saving faith marked by godly behavior.
