The Book of James is the earliest of the New Testament Epistles, written between 44 and 50 AD. Its author is none other than James, the half brother of Jesus. There are 230 words in this letter that closely follow Acts 15:13-21 where he preached in Jerusalem, prior to his appearance at the Jerusalem council circa 49 AD .
While Jesus taught throughout the land, James, as well as his other siblings, Joses and Judas, Simon, and his unnamed sisters, did not believe in Him. “For not even his brothers believed in him.” (John 7:5, ESV) and Mark tells us that his family thought, “. . . He is out of his mind.” (Mark 3:21, ESV)
However, James came to believe later after Jesus appeared to him and the other apostles. He rapidly soared to a high position as head of the Jerusalem church. James wrote to the Jewish Christians that had been dispersed throughout Judea and Samaria and even as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch (Acts 11:19). Along with Peter and Paul he explained that both Jews and Gentiles would be saved the same way – through Christ alone! Further, they explained, the two could easily fellowship with each other without giving needless offense (Acts 15:19-21).
This book has sometimes been called, “the Proverbs of the New Testament.” James gives practical reminders of how Christians should live. He takes us through ways a Christian should live; how they should persevere in their faith; control their tongues, and so much more.
One can easily see that james had a Pastor’s heart as does Pastor Ted.
