This came up on another thread (can't recall which one, but it wasn't the topic). A couple of people said the book of James was written to Jews (I am not sure if they meant believers or not), and at least one person said it was written to both believers and unbelievers. I have been under the impression that James was written to believers -- to the "twelve tribes" (James 1.2), which referred to Jewish believers, according to what I've read. James is compared to the wisdom literature of the OT, like Proverbs, and is tied in with the Sermon on the Mount. In reading James, I do not for the life of me see how it's written to unbelievers. So what do you think? If you think it was not written to believers, what evidence is there for that?
