The Epistle of Straw? (James 1:1)

Aug 28, 2007

Martin Luther called the book of James an Epistle of Straw. Luther did not think that this book belonged in the canon of scripture. However, when we understand the implications of "the Lord Jesus Christ" we will see that James has a consistent view of the realization of the blessings of Christ even as we live in an exile situation away from heaven.
