The book of James is often described as the Proverbs of the New Testament because it follows that form of instruction which was used in Proverbs and Ecclesiastes. This epistle was likely written before all the other epistles. We’d be safe to place it between 45 and 50AD. Church tradition teaches us that James was the half brother of Jesus. This is a widely accepted belief, however some skeptics argue that he could be James, the half-brother of Alphaeus.
James was writing to Jewish Christians living outside of their inherited land, however, this doesn’t limit the application of the epistle to them only. Although James’ audience was Jewish Christians, the truth addressed to them, would also apply to us.
