In this study, we will investigate the teachings of James, the brother of Jesus. He is moved by the Holy Spirit to write concerning Christian life lived in a practical but obedient manner. In the second part of our study, we will consider the teachings of Peter who was an apostle of Jesus Christ. Most people are familiar with Peter, his walk with Jesus, his failures, and his great accomplishments. Some have elevated him over the years to a place in history he biblically cannot fill. We view these letters as written by two elders in Christ's Church and their concern for His people.
