We continue in our study as we introduce the writer of the Book of James. From our last article, we understood that the Epistle was written by the stepbrother of Jesus who became a Christian when he discovered that Jesus was raised from the dead by the power of God as promised. He became the eldest son of Mary after the death of Jesus, as he had no choice but to acquiesce to the call of God. We also discovered that he was immediately engrafted into the league of the disciples and was referred to as, James, the brother of our Lord Jesus.
