James with Jimmy in July
But there is still plenty for us to learn! We will be tackling another difficult book of the New Testament, James" in July. We're calling it "James with Jimmy in July."
The book of James is often found right alongside Revelation in the list of "undesirables." Essentially, James is the counterweight to Paul - a sort of balancing measure that calls Christians back to the reality that we must do the right thing as well as believe the right thing.
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world. -James 1:27
"Oh schucks!" you may say, "I'll be out of town during July! I'm going to miss this incredible opportunity!"
Have no fear. You will be able to follow our Bible study at stalbansbiblestudy.blogspot.com. During the month of July, you will be able to read a short commentary from me and then post comments or questions. I will respond to them, and we'll have our very own digital Bible study. Doesn't studying the Bible while you're laying on the beach sound pretty cool?
