Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way? James 2:25

James now proceeds to his final example of being justified by works. Here, he uses the harlot Rahab as an example.

Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? James 2:22

James just cited the account of Abraham offering up Isaac on the altar to support his notion that “faith without works is dead.” With that in mind, he then says, “Do you see.” Translations are divided on this.Read the rest
