3 It can easily be argued that the links between the ethic of James and the teaching of Jesus are as strong, if not stronger than those between any other document in the New Testament and the traditions of Jesus. Achtemeier, Green and Thompson Achtemeier, Green and Thompson

4 But ask in faith, never in doubt. James 1:6 If you have faith and do not doubt… Matthew 21:21

5 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but do not have works? Can Faith save you? James 2:14 Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord,” will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. Matthew 7:21

6 But be doers of the word, and not merely hearers who deceive themselves. James 1:22 But he said, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it!” Luke 11:28

7 From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers and sisters, that ought not to be so.. Can a fig tree… yield olives, or a grapevine figs? James 2:14 You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? Matthew 7:16

8 And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace for those who make peace. James 3:18 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Matthew 5:8

9 Your riches have rotted, and your clothes are moth- eaten. Your gold and silver have rusted, and their rust will be evidence against you, and it will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up treasures for the last days. James 5:2 - 3 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moss nor rust consumes … For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:

10 Above all, my beloved, do not swear, wither by heaven or by earth, or by any other oath, but let your ‘Yes’ be yes and your ‘No’ be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation. James 5:12 But I say to you, do not swear at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, or by the earth, for it is his footstool… Let your word be ‘Yes, Yes’ or ‘No, No’; anything more than this comes from the devil. Matthew 5:34- 37

11 The Script Act 1:Creation Act 2:The Fall Act 3: The Story of Israel Act 4:The Life of Christ Act 5:The Early Church……… “A new heaven and a new earth”

12 James: Pastor and Prophet

13 James and Jesus…. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.NASB

14 In Whom Shall we Boast? But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil. James 4:16 You who boast in the Law, through your breaking the Law, do you dishonor God? Romans 2:23 But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. Galatians 6:13

15 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us. 1 John 4: 10 – 12 (NASB)

16 Our Script?God’s Script? “Purify your hearts, you double-minded” ( dipsucos ) James 4:8

17 GOD God’s Script…….. Us

18 GOD Our current reality…….. Us Jesus Effect of Sin

19 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous person can accomplish much. James 5:16 (NASB)

20 Repentance (metanoia) means to change your mind. Learning (manthano) means to change your direction Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father, comes to Me. John 6:46 (NASB)
