A Society of Suffering

The book of James is called Wisdom Literature in the New Testament, which means that the book is very practical. It has a high view of God’s law and an ethical focus that runs throughout each chapter. 

We’re considering the question, “What’s the vision of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York?” Let’s look at three things we learn from this passage in James about the topic of suffering: what we face, how we can face it, and who we face it with.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 22, 2009. Series “The Gospel in Community: The Book of James”. Scripture: James 1:1-18.
