Jesus had two apostles named James: James, the son of Zebedee and James, the son of Alphaeus, but it is unlikely that either of these wrote the letter.
The Protestant reformer Martin Luther denied it was the work of an apostle and termed it an "epistle of straw" The Holy Tradition of the Orthodox Church teaches that the Book of James was "written not by either of the apostles [sic], but by the “brother of the Lord” who was the first bishop of the Church in Jerusalem (see Acts 15, Galatians ).""The Letter of James also, according to the majority of scholars who have carefully worked through its text in the past two centuries, is among the earliest of New Testament compositions.
It contains no reference to the events in Jesus' life, but it bears striking testimony to Jesus' words.
He condemns various sins, including pride, hypocrisy, favouritism, and slander.
He encourages and implores believers to humbly live by godly, rather than worldly wisdom and to pray in all situations.
