A study of the Letter of James


James 5:1-6: Handling Wealth and Oppression - Part 2

March 22, 2018

In our study of James 5:1-6, we revisit the subject of wealth, voluntary poverty, detachment, solidarity with the poor, and proper use of wealth.  We examine the echos of the Law and Prophets regarding economic justice in James.  Finally, we discuss whether or not we should resist oppression.


James 5:7-8: Christian Burnout and Patience in Suffering - Part 1

April 5, 2018

We examine James' exhortation to patience in the face of oppression and supplement it with similar exhortations in II Peter, the message to the Ephesians in Revelation 2, and the in the letter to the Hebrews.  We explore how the discipline of suffering brings us to the adulthood of Christianity and read several excerpts on suffering from the Diary of Saint Faustina.

As we conclude our study of the Letter of James, we briefly review judging each other and mercy, examine James' treatment of anointing, illness, and healing, observe James' appeal to oral tradition, and address the need to pray for each other and our fellow sinners as part of being doers of the word in keeping with James' theme.
