  • James Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Apr 8, 2022

    Even after more than two years of miracles, James is a skeptic. It would, after all, be rather hard to swallow the idea that the brother you had grown up with was the Son of God.

    Jesus came from a big family. Matthew 13:55-56 names Jesus' brothers: James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas and mentions sisters (plural), so He had at least six siblings. James is consistently named first when Jesus' brothers are listed, which in his day likely meant that he was the eldest of more

    #5~THE APOSTLE JAMES, THE SON OF ALPHAEUS, who is also CLEOPHAS~ 1-4-14 ~ This apostle, some times referred too as "James the less" -- He was probably called this either because he was short in stature, or perhaps because he was younger, also to distinguish him from the other apostle James, the more

    based on 9 ratings

    A look at the changed life of James

    The Metamorphosis of James the Brother of Jesus James 1:1 Introduction James’ passion bleeds out over the words that he uses. He has the passion of a sincere Jewish Christian and may well be called the Amos (after the prophet) of the new covenant. It is thick with pastoral encouragement, and more

  • Greetings From James - James 1.1 Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Mar 25, 2021

    The Apostle James was one of the so-called "Sons of Thunder," and was specifically named "James, son of Zebedee" and is sometimes called "James the Greater"

    I. There are certain realities of life common to all believers – 1:1-1:18. A. Trials and testing will come and can be overcome -- 1:1-8.

  • Faith And Works

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Dec 30, 2013
    based on 5 ratings

    The practical faith of Rahab stands in contrast to the platitudes of the person who sent the hungry empty away, and failed to clothe the naked.

    FAITH AND WORKS. James 2:14-26. A person is making what seems to be a credible claim to “faith” - but (as yet) there is no evidence in their lives of their allegiance to Jesus Christ. They seem to have all the right words, but (so far) “works” are lacking. James 2:14. What is the profit in the more

  • James - An Introduction Series

    Contributed by Bobby Stults on Aug 20, 2013

    The letter that is written by James to the Jews scattered abroad is a letter that is often misunderstood and misused.

    A Study of the Letter of James James 1:1 August 14, 2013 James is a book that has long been misunderstood by many believers! We have seen some great men of faith come to the conclusion that what James seems to teach is in conflict with the teachings of grace from the Apostle Paul. Martin Luther more

  • James - A Faith That Works (2021) Series

    Contributed by David Owens on May 30, 2021

    In this introductory sermon for a series on the Book of James, we explore two questions: who is the author and who are the recipients. The sermon also drives home the point that we must be doers of the Word of God and not hearers only.

    Introduction: A. One day, a couple of weeks before Christmas in the mid1980s, I was driving on the back roads of Arkansas from El Dorado, Arkansas to Memphis, TN. 1. I was on my way to take my graduate class finals and I was running late. 2. I set the cruise control about 8 miles over the speed more

    An introductory message to a study of the book of James.

    JAMES 1:1 THE WRITER AND READERS OF JAMES [Hebrews 5:11-14] The book of James belongs to the wisdom literature of the Bible. This sort of literature was common to the writings of the Old Testament but James is the only book of this genre or type in the New Testament. Wisdom literature is more

  • Journey Through James #1: The Half-Brother Of Jesus

    Contributed by Chris Jordan on May 6, 2014
    based on 4 ratings

    The life of James, the half-brother of Jesus, is a great example for us to follow. Even though initially he didn’t believe in Jesus, he went on to trust Him as Saviour and Lord, and became a passionate, committed disciple of Jesus.

    JOURNEY THROUGH JAMES #1: THE HALF-BROTHER OF JESUS INTRO TO TOPIC: • Can you imagine what it would have been like to share a bunk bed with Jesus as a kid? • When I was a kid, I had two younger sisters, so I never had to share a room with them. • Maybe Jesus and his brothers more

  • A Faith That Works Series

    Contributed by David Owens on Apr 30, 2006
    based on 1 rating

    Introduction to sermon series on James.

    Introduction: A. Perhaps with the exception of Proverbs, there is no more practical book in all the Bible than the letter of James. 1. As a tribute to the inspiration of God, it remains as practical for the 21st century as it was for the first century when it was written. 2. Do people still have more

  • Christian Wisdom

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Dec 30, 2013
    based on 4 ratings

    Worldly wisdom versus the 'wisdom from on high.'

    CHRISTIAN WISDOM. James 3:13-4:3; James 4:7-8. “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God” (James 1:5) James has used an illustration of two sources in his discussion of the divisiveness of the tongue (James 3:10-12). Now he wants to get to the heart of the matter. It is not, after all, more

    based on 2 ratings

    There are no untouchables with God.

    RICH AND POOR IN THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST (concluded). James 2:1-17. James 2:1.

    based on 34 ratings

    James 1:26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. James 3:18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. Peacemakers are continua

  • And To Think I Called Him Crazy

    Contributed by Tony Miano on Dec 7, 2000
    based on 147 ratings

    We’re going to look at three phases of James’ life. Some of you may be able to relate really well to this. We’re going to look at James, the skeptical brother; James, the saved sinner; and James, the servant Leader.

    And To Think I Called Him "Crazy" James 1:1 Preached by Pastor Tony Miano Pico Canyon Community Church October 29, 2000 Introduction: I’m excited about what we’re beginning this morning. I think our study of the Book of James is vitally important to the life and health of our church, especially more
