comment What is “Midrash” and how does it relate to Christian principles of hermeneutics?
Text added by an anonymous user (Should be a comment, not part of the question): There’s an excellent article on that subject at etsjets.org/files/JETS-PDFs/51/51-2/… Martin Pickup, “New Testament Interpretation of the Old Testament: The Theological Rationale of Midrashic Exegesis.” JETS 51/2 (June 2008) 353–81.

comment Is the rich man in James 1:10 a brother?
That's actually off topic and should be asked in a new question or in chat. So, I posted it as a new question..

No, I consistently translate it as "brother". But brother has many definitions. "fellow man" or "countryman" is just as valid an interpretation of "brother" as "believer" is. It's all about context, my brother.

That's an interesting question. The confusion in translation lies with the second word here.

So, the fruit of righteousness is {a tree of life} meaning everlasting life?

@Soldarnal Well, that is an interest possibility. However, I think we have to discount 1:7 entirely, since the point of that statement isn't to say "a man" but rather "mankind". (In fact, if I were writing a translation, I would use "mankind" there.) It's more of the generic concept of "man". However, In 1:9, he's using the word to indicate a person rather than a concept. So, he's talking here about a low "brother" and a rich one (rather than a low concept of man). Because of that, I still believe that "brother" here is more of a "countryman" or "fellow man". But you make a great point!
