Expository Bible Studies: James

About These Expository Bible Studies on James

These expository Bible studies on the Book of James are full of practical wisdom for everyday living.

For James, Christianity is no mere theoretical belief system. It is totally relevant to daily life. He deals with all sorts of issues from coping with trials to dealing with the tongue.

He outlines the relationship between faith and works in such controversial wording that he earned the ire of Martin Luther who branded his letter an "epistle of straw."

James himself was the half-brother of Jesus who, prior to the resurrection of Christ, had rejected Jesus as the Messiah. (See Mark 3:31-35.) However, after the resurrection, he joined the other believers (see Acts 1:14) because Christ had personally appeared to him (see 1 Corinthians 15:3-7).

After this, James appears to have become the leader of the church in Jerusalem (see Acts 15 as well as Acts 21:18), quite a testimony to the grace of God.

Books to learn from

Spiritual warfare is an area of Christian life that is easily relegated to one of two extremes. It is either seen as irrelevant in our enlightened times and therefore ignored. Or it is viewed as an activity to be engaged in on special occasions when the church participates in a spiritual warfare meeting. That's just what the devil would like us to think. This book is based on sound Biblical teaching that every Christian, like it or not, is involved in warfare daily. If you're serious about overcoming the devil, read this book. Topics covered include: Satan's greatest weapon, overcoming temptation, God's Word and other spiritual weapons, how to use the whole armor of God, the real meaning of "in Jesus' name", the power of the blood of Jesus, and more.
