The Angle of Oppression
James’s Epistle is often compared to wisdom literature. The writer is surely adept at distilling complex thoughts into proverbial nuggets. But there’s also a great deal of prophetic heat emanating from his wisdom, with most of the fury aimed at rich people. James wants the church to be the one place where the poor aren’t marginalized and mistreated. And he’s very blunt in what that will require.
