The Book of James
The book of James was written by Jesus’ half-brother; a man who grew up with Jesus, knew him intimately, and was by his side for much of his ministry. This book is therefore filled with the wisdom of Jesus; much of which parallels the Sermon on the Mount. This book also leans heavily on the book of Proverbs. The book of James is a well-crafted conglomeration of Biblical wisdom designed to point followers of Jesus Christ in the right direction.
I’ve written eleven brief blog posts on the lessons from the book of James that impacted me in my most recent reading. Each post only takes a few minutes to read (less than 5 minutes each) and in that time you will be connected to the Word of God through the included scripture. I suggest you pray about each lesson and spend some time meditating on the included scripture before you move on to the next lesson. My prayer is that this study will open your eyes in a new way when you read the book of James for yourself. May you be greatly blessed in your effort to move closer to God.
