New Testament / James

Summary
Date: 80-90 C.E.

The letter of James is written in the style of a homily, likely to a community of Jewish-Christians outside of Israel/Palestine. The letter is traditionally attributed to James the brother of Jesus, but scholarship primarily considers the book written anonymously, perhaps by a later disciple of James who admired his fidelity to Jewish practice and customs. The letter is notable for advocating faithfulness during trials and also against showing partiality to the rich.
