…have you not shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts? James 2:4

James now completes his thoughts concerning “partiality” which began in verse 2:1. The NKJV says, “have you not shown partiality among yourselves.” This makes it sound like he is confirming his idea in 2:1 concerning partiality.Read the rest

With the words, “My brethren,” James is seen to be addressing believers, specifically Jewish believers though (see verse 1:1).
