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 delve into the text itself and the history of it’s author; Yaakov/James!
What is the “law of liberty”? Yaakov/James leads us down a path of not only receiving the Word of יהוה/Yahuwah but putting it into active obedience and practice. Yisrael/Isreal was freed from bondage and given the Book of the Covenant.
What is it that we are “under”? As we go through Chapter 2, we’ll take a look at how translation prejudice leads to the formation of doctrine, while the truth of the text ties directly back to the Book of the Covenant!
How are death and life in the hands of the tongue? Yaakov/James expounds on the importance of controlling what it is that we say. The use of the tongue is what separates wisdom from foolishness.
From where do wars and fighting among you come? The lusts of our flesh are in direct contradiction with the Ruach/Spirit given to us by יהוה/Yahuwah. In His mercy, יהוה/Yahuwah has given us his Royal Torah and empowered us with the grace to walk in it.
What about the taking of oaths? Learn how Yaakov/James aligns himself directly with Yahusha to establish Melchizedek covenantal harmony that ties directly back to the Berishith/Genesis 12 oath.
