The Epistle of James - Wednesday Evening Studies, Fall 2017

This page provides access to the handouts from the study, and also to my annotations of the text, leader's notes, and links to some relevant sources on the web.



Study Leader:  Scott Inrig

Martin Luther was probably the most famous detractor of the letter of James, calling it “an epistle of straw.”  For some reason, that phrase brought to mind the house of straw in the children’s story, The Three Little Pigs.  But is the letter of James really like that – insubstantial and unimportant?  Or is it more like the house of brick – solid and enduring?  Explore this letter and decide for yourself.
