Yaakov Tzadik, or James the Just: Brother of Messiah, Zealot Leader, and Episcopate of the Jerusalem Assembly. Is this epistle simply an unpacking of Christology, or a guide for practical living among the Melchizedek priesthood? Join us, as we wrap up our series on the Book of James.

James the Just – Wrap Up

Location: Yaakov was in or around the vicinity of Jerusalem when he wrote this homily.

Audience: Hebrew hellenized audience whose recipients reside outside Jerusalem – in the Diaspora, with a substantial part of them living in Phoenicia, Cyprus and Antioch.

All 12 tribes – reveals the majority of the so called ‘Jews’ that Yahusha and the talmudic were interacting with were in fact the synagogue of S.a.tan, ‘those who say they are Jews and are not’.

Theme: addressing persecution. A very rich Jewish/Hebraic atmosphere, the meeting place of the assembly is still called a synagogue and the oneness of יהוה is still evident (2:19), this is prior to any development of self-consciously Christian theology!

The book contains more than 40 allusions from the Tanakh and 4 direct quotes.

Object: To strengthen the faith of believers in the midst of persecution, who were being persecuted by the wealthy Jewish and elite class who were guilty of defrauding and oppressing them (NWO today).

Language – Septuagintal with only thirteen words in James that aren’t found in the LXX – giving the Greek a very Semitic feel – written originally in Greek borrowing from the Wisdom literature (Sirach, Wisdom of Solomon, and Proverbs).

1.3 the five virtues of faith:

  1. patience
  2. endurance
  3. fortitude
  4. steadfastness
  5. perseverance

1:14 The family tree of sin needs to cut at it’s root….desire…..three generations!

  • Lust is the mother of sin and the grandmother of death.
  • Lust – the sin nature is the grandmother, sin is the mother, and death the result of sin – the daughter.
  • Lust, like the harlot, entices and seduces those desires.

Yaakov’s election to the ‘Episcopate.
This is the missing history of Yaakov, Yaakov the undisputed successor to Yahusha and ‘the Bishop of Bishops’ or ‘Archbishop’ ‘Archapostles’ ‘Pillar’ of the community of saints!
