Can Faith Save Him? (James 2:14-26)

Mark Fontecchio published on

Martin Luther referred to James as a straw epistle. Many others have struggled to find the relationship between faith and works within this letter from James. The confusion that surrounds the book of James continues to be an ever-present reality within the Church of Christ. Meanwhile, people around the world continue to cry out that if you have faith show it to us with your works.

Is faith ever alone? Should works and faith go together? Do they always? Bible Teacher Mark Fontecchio walks us through this difficult passage with clarity and precision.  James 2:14-26 is not meant to be a test of salvation, but a challenge to believers to live in light of the coming Judgment Seat of Christ.

Come grow in your faith and knowledge of the book of James. Teaching God's Word and advancing the message of His amazing grace one verse at a time.
