Author: James
Written to Jewish Christians
Key Word: Temptation and Trial
Why: James addressed a number of very practical concerns
The needs among the churches related most directly to relational tension between the rich and the poor.

James was committed to joy in the midst of trials
He first presented trials as inevitable.
He never wrote if faced trials, he wrote when you faced trials.

He did not focus on one kind of difficulty

James Put Great Value on God’s Righteous Wisdom
Two main passages in James
1:5-8 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.
3:13-18Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.

James was really concerned about both the poor and the rich
Those in the Christian community avoided favoritism
Christ-followers should meet the practical needs of the poor
The rich should focus on humility, realizing that a wealthy life and social status are temporary.

James really cared that we do the word, not just hear it
His teaching has to do with being a “doer,” not just a hearer.
If James were here, he would urge us to not show favoritism to rich and neglect the poor.

James emphasized a proper understanding of Faith...
