James The Just, The Brother Of Jesus - Poem by Patricia Kelley

James the just, as they called him died around 62 AD.
He was the brother to Jesus Christ the risen King.
Known as the faithful praying man on his bent camel knees,
He earned respect.
By all that saw him.
He was a respectful character, and teacher.
He would make his pleas.
On his hardened prayer knees, he prayed.
Squatted as a camel in prayer,
James prayed for those that persecuted the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Those that felt threatened by the risen king.
He would become a martyr.
Sent by the scribes and Pharisees to renounce Jesus Christ, he announced the opposite.
Feeling confident!
He proclaimed.
Jesus Christ as the risen King.
He’s sitting on the right hand side of God the Father.
He exclaimed.
The scribes and Pharisees felt betrayed.
They wanted only revenge.
To scare the crowd,
To halt their faith,
And, pushed him off the temple parapet, where he lay awake.
Not feeling the shake.
Then, they stoned him and clubbed him in the head.
Leaving him for dead to rest in his grave’s bed.
Not knowing his last breath; was his first breath in Heaven.
This was the death and martyr of James the Just.
