I am reading James 1 right now. I have a translation question on the

Iakwbos theos kai kuriou Ihsou Christou doulos

The common translation is "James, a servant of God and the Lord Jesus Christ

What is the possibility of this translation?

"James, a servant of Jesus Christ who is God and Lord ..."

Please comment and give support for either position taken. Grammatically,
both seem to be acceptable. However, the first translation listed seems to be
the most common.
