Abstract

Although recent research on the Epistle of James has shown an interest in the theology of the letter, it has not done so for the Christology of the letter. Because Christ is mentioned by name only twice (James 1:1; 2:1), interpreters today still perpetuate the centuries-old judgment that James is the least Christological book of the New Testament. In this essay, Niebuhr challenges that longstanding assumption, showing exegetically how an implicit Christology is woven into the letter’s view of the identity of God himself.
