The book of James is special. It opens a window to us into some of the struggles that early Christian churches faced. Envy, jealousy, and worldliness spread among the Christians. Social and cultural pressures caused problems between wealthier Christians and poor ones. We also see a great struggle going on as James attacks false ideas about wisdom and faith. 

Most important for Seventh-day Adventists, the Epistle of James shows a strong faith in the return of Jesus. It also gives us important understandings about the law, the judgment, and the Second Coming. Elijah is even held up by James as an example for us to follow. 

So, in some ways, our journey this quarter covers the entire Christian period—from Christ’s time to ours. The reason is that it includes not only some of the earliest preaching but also special wisdom for these last days. 

Enjoy!
