James 1:1

James says ‘Hello’

1 This letter is from me, James. I am a servant of God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:1James is the brother of Jesus, but he describes himself as a servant of Jesus Christ.

I am writing to the 12 tribes of God's people who live in many different parts of the world. I say ‘hello’ to all of you.

1:1This may mean all believers, wherever they live. There were 12 tribes of Israel in the Old Testament. They were God's people. Now all Christians are God's people.
