Books of the Bible


The Book of James (or the Letter of James) is the 20th book of the New Testament. In this book, written as a short letter, James addresses several topics on acceptable versus unacceptable behaviors.

  • Testing one's faith
  • Sin of partiality (partially fulfilling the moral law instead of only completely)
  • Being careful about what one says (you can curse as well as bless)
  • Warning about worldliness (not getting too involved with worldly affairs)
  • Don't boast about what tomorrow will bring, since you really don't know
  • Warning about being rich
  • Being patient with suffering
  • The efficacy of prayer versus health issues

Notable Verses

  • "If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself," you are doing well. But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors. For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become accountable for all of it." James 2:8-10 Bible-icon.png
  • "You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God." James 4:4 Bible-icon.png
  • "You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand." James 5:8 Bible-icon.png
