– 43 – 50 A.D.
– The letter of James contains practical information pertaining
to everyday life as a Christian. It is not directed at any
church in particular, but rather to Jewish believers, revealing
their responsibilities to the principles of the Law as manifested
in Christ. It focuses on real faith, and shows that there
is a need to develop faith as an energising power that would
find its outworking in a changed life; therefore, the epistle
dwells on practice and not doctrine.
