"Come Now, Ye Rich, Weep And Howl"; Understanding James In Proper Context

Jeff Meyers, author of Wisdom for Dissidents, an extensive new commentary of the Epistle of James, discusses James's denunciations of the rich in their historical and political context. Instead of being universal condemnations of wealth for all times and places, James wrote his letter at a time when a particular power faction in Jerusalem was using its wealth and power in an attempt to destroy the Jesus movement.
