The primary aim of this thesis is to establish, as far As that can be done, the basis for the canonicity of the Epistle of James. That problem really involves two questions. In the first place, does the Epistle come from Apostolic times? If it does not, then the problem is immediately settled, and the Epistle does not belong in our Bible. On the other hand, if it does come from Apostolic times, who is meant by the simple superscription “James, a servant of God and of our Lord Jesus Christ”?
