General Notes:"[This commentary] was designed to take its place in a Commentary on the whole N.T. planned by the three friends, Westcott, Lightfoot, and Hort in 1860. Dr. Hort's share included the Synoptic Gospels, the Acts, and the Epistles of St James, St Peter, and St Jude. After a brief period of work on the Gospels, of which only a few unimportant fragments remain, Dr Hort set to work on St James. If we may judge from the condition of the MS. the Commentary on Chapter I was complete ... in 1871. His notes were, however, worked over and written out afresh when he chose St James as the subject for his first three courses of Lectures as Hulsean Professor in 1880, 1881. ... When ... he returned to the Epistle in the Summer Term of 1889, he dealt mainly with questions of Introduction. The introductory matter printed in this volume was prepared for that course of Lectures. It was supplemented by condensed notes on select passages from the earlier chapters of the epistle. No further progress was made with the Commentary on the Text. The Introduction and Commentary have been printed substantially as they stand in the MS."--pref. / J.O.F. Murray.
"It is clear that Dr Hort worked habitually on an hypothesis ... Everything here turns on the extent to which a knowledge of Greek may be pre-supposed among the Jewish inhabitants of Palestine in the First Century A.D. ... Dr. Hort ... thinks it possible to identify dialectic peculiarities of Palestinian Greek. He is prepared to believe in the currency of 'Greek paraphrases of the O.T. resembling the Hebrew Targums.' ...And he finds the Epistle of St James full of implied references to the words of the Lord in their Greek form"--pref. / J.O.F. Murray.
