The book of James was written by Jesus brother James (IAKOBOS [Greek] = Jakob). James initially rejected the message of Christ, and it wasn’t until later on that James believed in the resurrection and gave his life to the ministry of Christ. James was written around 40-60 AD, a time where eye-witnesses of Jesus’ death and resurrection still lived. James became a leader of the church in Jerusalem after Jesus’s resurrection, and led the church through times of famine and persecution. The main theme in the book of James is answers the question: ‘How are believers to live out their faith in everyday life.’ This goes being just hearing the word of God, but obeying it as well.
