Some people confuse the Apostle James as the author of the Book of James but that James was the half-brother of Jesus who only professed faith in Christ after Jesus rose from the dead. By the time that Book of James was written, and it appears to be the first book written in the New Testament around 45 AD, James the son of Zebedee had already.

The best little book on James I've read, I liked it so much I got Dr. Scaer's "Discourses in Matthew".

One apostle who often gets overlooked is James, the brother of Jesus. While James wasn’t one of the Twelve, there is good reason to believe he was not a believer of Jesus during his public ministry (Mark ; John ), he saw the risen Jesus (1 Cor   Answer: James was a son of Mary and Joseph and therefore a half-brother to Jesus and brother to Joseph, Simon, Judas, and their sisters (Matthew ).

In the Gospels, James is mentioned a couple of times, but at that time he misunderstood Jesus’ ministry and James not a believer (John ). In the history of interpretation the letter of James has been marginalized and compared unfavorably with the writings of Paul.

James argues for an important canonical role for James, not subordinate to Paul, but a complementary scriptural voice. Richard Baukham explores the historical and literary context of the text, discussing the significance of James as the brother of Jesus and leader of.

The writer refers to himself only as "James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ" ().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 word for disciple and the word for discipline both come from the same Latin root—discipulus, which means pupil. The book of James is not where most people turn to for a discussion of Christology.
