Many of us don't know who the author of the book of James is. Some think he is one of the two original disciples, but it surprises many when I tell them it is actually Jesus' brother. James was the leader of the early church, and was truly a righteous man who stood up for the marginalized, the poor, those who had no voice, and was a prophet against religious injustice. In this episode, you will find out the context of the man, the context of his times, and why in the context of Judaism he was considered a Tzedek (a righteous devout follower of God and the Hebrew Scriptures).  Find out more.
