E. ELLIOTTBJNNS it had been shown that James is dependent on a pre-literary Jesus tradition. 67 A careful review of the data by J. B. ADAMSON points to the same fact: whereas James' interest in law is similar to Matthew, his thematic interests and eschatology are doser to Luke, but he is independent of both and depends on the pre-gospel tradition. 68 In two more recent analyses of a somewhat more limited scope, G. MAlER and R. HOPPE come to similar condusions about the major themes in James. While James ultimately has wisdom material as his background, this is refracted, according to HOPPE, through the pregospel Jesus tradition.

Thus James ranks with Hebrews and perhaps 1 Peter as among the best Greek style in the New Testament. It is only recently, however, that a technical analysis of this style has been undertaken. 70 On the other hand, a description of the Greek style may obscure the fact of grammatical peeuliarities and stylistic features unusual to Greek. This semitizing language is very common in James, but there are two possible sourees: 1) the influenee of the LXX upon an author unacquainted with Aramaie or Hebrew, and 2) a Hebrew or Aramaie substrueture, either in the mind of the author (i.

Over against the evil of 1:13 -15 stands God who gives good and perfect gifts (1:17). The gift which is sought in James is the gift of wisdom (1:5). It is apparently the ·something lacking' which is needed to bring the person to fun perfection. 92 That wisdom is an eschatological gift to the elect, a sign of the end times, was a clear expectation of many of the apocalyptic communities in late Judaism (e. g. Enoch 5:8; Syr. Bar 59:7; 2 Esd. 8:52; CD 6:3; 1 QS 1:35; 4: 2 - 6, 22), as wen as of Christianity.
