Read Romans 3:21 – 4:25. Then read James 2:14-26. Decide what the argument is in each passage and post a thread that briefly shows how Paul and James develop the arguments in the passage. Notice that Paul wrote that one is justified faith apart from works of the law (Rom 3:28) and that Abraham was not justified by works (4:20). Then notice that James says Abraham was, and we are justified by works and not by faith alone (James 2:21; 2:24). Then analyze both points within the flow of thought in Romans 3:21 – 4:25 and James 2:14-26 and suggest a resolution of the apparent tension between James and Paul.
