James by TitianThe Epistle of James is a book in the Christian New Testament. The author identifies himself as "James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ", traditionally understood as James, son of Alphaeus.

Framed within an overall theme of patient perseverance during trials and temptations, the text condemns various sins and calls on Christians to be patient while awaiting the Second Coming.

The epistle has been the subject of controversy. The Protestant reformer Martin Luther argued that it was not the work of an apostle,[1] Roman Catholicism[2] and Eastern Orthodoxy[3] claim it contradicts the doctrine of justification through faith alone (Sola fide), a doctrine which Luther derived from his translation of Romans 3:28.[4] The Christian debate over Justification is still unsettled, see also Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification, Biblical law in Christianity, and New Perspective on Paul.
