    James the Just was, in the time between Jesus' resurrection and James's death, the most prominent and widely respected leader in Christendom. These essays by eight renowned scholars address such issues as the Jewish context of the early church, the person of James, his literary message and mission, and James in relation to Peter and Paul/5.

    James the son of Zebedee and brother of John, though better known, also lacked prominence in the early church and was martyred at the early date of A.D. 44 (Acts ). The Epistle of James was probably written by the half-brother of Jesus. I say half-brother, because Jesus' mother was Mary and His Father was God.   We also read about this James in Paul’s epistles, where he notes that Jesus made a special post-Resurrection appearance to this James (1 Cor. ), that he was “the Lord’s brother” (Gal. ), that he was one of the pillars of the Jerusalem church (Gal. ), and that he was connected with the controversy about whether Gentiles needed.
