In this essay, the author uses tools of biblical studies to re-read the Letter of James from the mission perspective. She takes as point of departure the violent and corrupt situation of the globalized world and the global warming. With that background in mind, she focuses on the mission ad intra in the Letter of James. It is a letter addressed to migrants (‘the twelve tribes in the Dispersion’) living in different parts of the world. While suffering discrimination from Roman society because of their Jewish culture and their faith, these migrants should act wisely, remember the values of the gospel of solidarity and perseverance, and above all, show coherence between what they believe and say and what they do. The recipients need to distinguish between authentic faith and false faith. Through this study, the author adds a new biblical paradigm of mission to the mission paradigms of David J. Bosch.在这篇文章里,作者从宣教的角度用圣经研究的工具重读雅各书。她以全球暴力腐败及暖化的状况为出发点,以此为背景,集中探讨雅各书中 ad intra 的宣教。这是封写给住在世界各地的移民(‘散住十二个支派’)的书信。他们虽然因着自己信奉的犹太文化与信仰,遭受着来自罗马社会歧视的苦难,这些移民们应凭智慧行事,记住福音团结与坚韧的价值,最重要的是表现出他们所信的和说的,与他们所做的保持一致,收信者应分辨真假信仰。透过这个研究,作者在 David, J. Bosch 的宣教范式之上又加添了新的圣经宣教范式。En este trabajo la autora hace una relectura de la carta de Santiago desde la perspectiva de la misión. Ella toma como punto de partida la realidad violenta y corrupta del mundo globalizado y el calentamiento global. Con ese trasfondo en mente, ella concentra su enfoque en una misión ad-intra. Se trata, entonces de una carta dirigida a inmigrantes (doce tribus de la dispersión) de distintas partes del mundo que, a pesar de que sufren discriminación en su sociedad romana por ser judíos y creyentes necesitan que se les recuerde los valores del evangelio, como la solidaridad, la perseverancia, el control de las palabras y sobre todo la práctica de la coherencia entre el creer y el actuar. Los destinatarios necesitan distinguir entre la fe auténtica y la fe falsa. Con este ensayo bíblico la autora añade un paradigma de misión más a los propuestos por David J. Boch.This article is in English.
