Identifying The Central Issue In The General Epistles
Topic: Identifying the Central Issue in the General Epistles
Question/Prompt: Just because the General Epistles are not “occasional” as are Paul’s letters does not mean that they are not intended to speak to specific problems, issues, and crises in the congregations to which they are addressed. read the General Epistles of James through quickly (remember, it is a letter!), and then, in not less than 300 words, describe in your own words the issue, problem, or crisis the letter is meant to address. Having done that, discuss briefly how the letter is still relevant to the church today. Be sure to interact with assigned materials, including textbooks and assigned video and narrated PowerPoint presentations. Be sure to document any ideas not your own or “common knowledge” (including your textbooks, videos, and presentations) using parenthetical citations and bibliography.
