About James's letter

James wrote his letter to tell all Christians what they should do. He also told them what they should not do. The letter was in the Greek language. It is different from Paul's letters. It does not tell people what they must believe. James did not write it to tell them how to become Christians. He is writing to Christians. They know that Jesus died for them. He is writing to help them to live for Jesus. He is telling them how to become better Christians. After he had written his letter, he sent it to every Christian church. It is important to all Christians today. James was the brother of the Lord Jesus Christ. James was also a leader of the church in Jerusalem. See Acts 12:17; 15:13-22.
