Introduction to James
James was a holy-person (a sanctified-person, Christian, saint, a child of the only true God) with a Judean/Israeli background.
He was Jesus’ half-brother because Mary was his mother also, but Joseph was his father (Matthew 12:46 and 13:55). He was not one of the twelve whom Jesus had chosen to be his apostles. James had become a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ (James 1:1) through the appearance to him of the risen Christ (I Corinthians 15:7); then within a short amount of time he became a prominent figure in the church in Jerusalem (Acts 12:17, 15:13-21, 21:18, and Galatians 1:19, 2:9 and 12).
James wrote this letter to holy-people who were/are descendants of the 12 tribes of Israel now living in many different areas throughout the world (Acts 8:1 and 4, 11:19). It is interesting to notice that James did not include the words “Judean” or “Israel” or any of their derivatives at all.
He wrote this letter prior to Acts chapter 15, and therefore also before Paul wrote his letters.
