The book of James is a letter in the New Testament of the Bible. People think that the writer was James the brother of Jesus. He became a leader of the church in Jerusalem (Galatians1:19).
James tells his readers about different things:
We may suffer because we follow Jesus. But we must be patient (James 5:7-11). This will make us better people (James 1:2-4)
He speaks against rich people who do wrong things to poor people (James 2:1-4, James 5:1-7). God will say that they are wrong. If poor people trust God, this is better than wealth (James 2:5-7)
God will give wisdom to those who ask for it (James 1:5). This is because true wisdom comes from God (James 1:16-18). God's wisdom teaches us the right behaviour (James 3:13-16).
If we trust in God, we will show it in our actions (James 2:14-26).
James warns us to be careful about our words (James 3:1-12).
He tells us that we should pray sincerely (James 5:13-16).
James is a favourite book for many people.
