Written by Jesus’ half brother James, this short letter is packed full of practical, wisdom-filled instruction—deeply convicting details of how the Christian is to live the redeemed life. James’s writing offers insight on how to pray, how to follow the Lord through seasons of trial, and how to speak in ways that honor others. James paints a picture of true religion—a faith not just of hearing but of doing, a self-emptying life of reverence for God and care for His people.
This compact study also includes resources on Jesus’ connection to James, details on Jesus’ immediate family, and a gorgeous heat map of the letter’s original circulation.
The He Reads Truth James community study runs May 22-June 4, 2017.
