About James's letter

James wrote his letter to tell Christians what they should do. He also told them what they should not do. It is different from Paul's letters. James did not write it to tell people how to become Christians. He is writing to Christians. They know that Jesus died for them. He is writing to help them to live in a way that pleases Jesus.
After he had written his letter, he sent it to churches in many places. It is important for 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.
