This article discusses an attempt to answer the question posed by Jean-Luc Nancy in his book entitled 'La Déclosion': 'Is the Jew-Greek that Derrida describes at the end of 'Violence and Metaphysics' not a Christian?' At the beginning, the author outlines the issues that are introduced by the uncertainty expressed in this question concerning the nature of Christianity and attempts to present the basic theses of deconstruction as viewed by Nancy. Next, the author describes a fragment of the Book of James (James 1, 17) that describes the godly gifts. The traits of Jewish and non-Christian thought included in this fragment are pointed out. The next part emphasizes the aspect of the specifically Christian attitude towards the question of godly gifts. Thus, the author indicates that in the Christian view of this issue there is content that it is impossible to find in Jewish and non-Christian Greek thought. In conclusion, the author draws attention to the concurrence of the conclusion with certain findings of contemporary phenomenology.
