Reflective Paragraphs Week 11 – James


James is very big on doing things, and on looking at attitudes, and the actions of individuals. This makes a refreshing change from Paul, who dwells a lot on theology and on the running of churches. Paul is a lot more like today’s Christians: just a little bit removed from the physical reality of Jesus on earth, and very concerned with getting our facts straight and running things in order. James, on the other hand, sounds a lot more like Jesus in his letter. Well, it’s only to be expected: Paul may have seen Jesus, but he became a Christian years after Jesus’ death and resurrection; James was Christ’s brother, and grew up with Him.
