James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations: Greetings.
James brother of Jesus Christ, Savior and Redeemer, considered him as a servant of God and of Lord Jesus Christ. This first verse itself tells about the nature of James and how he considered him when compared to God and Lord Jesus Christ. Let me repeat .. Jesus Christ was the brother of James who wrote the Book of James. Brother of the Lord considering and presenting himself as his servant When representing a servant does not meant a literal servant (physically) but as nature ... Yes. What is the nature of a servant They submit themselves completely yo their master. They obey what his/her master commands and will get appreciation and remuneration as and what his mater provides. Servant has to make sure he takes care of the things which his master owns around the place where he works. Master has to glorify his master always and never consider him above or even equal to his master in skills, knowledge or fate. James had considered himself the same as a servant will be towards his master. He even though was the brother of Lord, never considered himself to be in similar level to Lord.
