Featured guest is Robbie Langford, a recently retired missionary of 30 years in South America, Central Asia, and Sudan. The book of James challenges us with the most basic and essential realities of life, driving us to face up to the truth about following Jesus.
Unlike many New Testament letters, we know very little about the background of this letter. But the book challenges us with the most basic and essential realities of life, driving us to face up to the truth about following Jesus the Messiah. James gives us the truth without ornament and cuts through the kinds of excuses and delusions we often use.
The six 15-minute segments cover the five chapters of James as follows:
1: The Testing of Your Faith (1:1-18)
2: Doers of the Word (1:19-2:13)
3: Faith Without Works Is Dead (2:14-26)
4: No Man Can Tame the Tongue (3:1-17)
5: Humble Yourselves before the Lord (3:18-4:17)
6: The Judge Is Standing at the Door (5:1-20)
Featured guest is Robbie Langford, a recently retired missionary of 30 years who had taught children of Christian workers in some of the most interesting and dangerous areas of the world in South America, Central Asia, and Sudan.
