James writes to the 12 tribes scattered abroad with a strong exhortation. He has all kinds of things to hit them on, from persevering in trial to helping the poor to maintaining good works. One of James’ favorite targets in this letter is the rich. He doesn’t have a lot of nice things to say about them. He describes them as suing Christians, blaspheming Christ’s name, and receiving sinful favoritism from people in the church.
