1.1 Big Picture
The epistle of James clearly occupies a special place in LDS discourse because of James 1:5. Before we narrow in on specific parts of the letter let’s consider some big picture questions:
Do you find James to be an enjoyable letter to read? Has it been an influential letter for you personally? Why?
Do you find the material in James, in general, more applicable to you than the Pauline letters?
Do you think we are are a “Jamesian” Church? Does that go too far? In what ways might that be both a fair and unfair moniker?
