Where was the epistle of James written?

A:

We can not really say where the Epistle of James was written. Tradition holds that it was written by James the brother of Jesus, in which case it must have been written before his death in the early sixties, probably in or around Jerusalem. However, only the most conservative scholars continue to accept that James the brother of Jesus was its author. As we do not know who the author was, we know little about when the letter was written and nothing about where.
