According to the New Testament, Saint James the Great was one of Jesus' Twelve Apostles. He was also known as son of Zebedee or Saint James the Greater (Yacoub in Arabic).
On the liturgical calendars of the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran, and some Protestant churches, St. James' feast day is observed on July 25.
To celebrate the feast of Saint James the Great, here are our favorite bible verses that include St. James the Greater:
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.
What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if people claim to have faith but have no deeds? Can such faith save them?
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
