The book of James references key points from the Sermon on the Mount and calls on Jesus’ followers to live wisely.
The book of James is filled with short, challenging wisdom speeches that are full of metaphors and easily memorized one-liners.
While James doesn't teach new theology, this book does challenge believers on how they should live, covering topics such as speech, favoritism, love, wealth, and hardship. When believers listen to and obey God's word, they show their love for him and others. Their actions match their words, and their lives are made whole, complete, and perfect.
