James is a book that offers wisdom for the people of the Messiah.
Wisdom: skill in navigating the complexities of real life
Do not show favoritism (2.1-9)
- Favoritism violates the royal law of King Jesus (8-9)
- Favoritism ignores the new reality of Jesus Kingdom (5-6)
Faith and actions should work together (2.22)
