I was reading the description of the ICC commentary on James and noted that it is described as an "Old Testament Book"

"This new volume on James brings together all the relevant aids to exegesis—linguistic, textual, archaeological, historical, literary and theological—to enable the scholar to have a complete knowledge and understanding of this Old Testament book. Allison incorporates new evidence available in the field and applies new methods of studies. No uniform theological or critical approach to the text is taken."

James 1:18  "Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first-fruits of his creatures."

But this is not  Old Testament statement.

Blessings in Christ.

Tes:

Tes,

I know that this is not the proper forum to debate this, but I cannot let it stand.

I know that James is a New Testament book, but you can't get any Old Testament older than

Genesis 1:26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."

And although not verbatim, James restates the knowledge of the Old Testament.

I was merely pointing out a typo
