Justification by Faith That Works

Passage: James 2:20–2:26

OVERVIEW:

The primary subject of the letter of James is faith. This is the root word, pisteúō [πιστεύω]. It its simplest form, this word means to believe or trust. 

James teaches us about faith by providing the evidences of faith and the examples of faith.
