  1. What does James imply with his questions about faith without deeds (14)? What does he teach through practical illustration (15-17)?

  2. What is the underlying assumption of those who disagree with James (18a)? How does James respond (18b-19)? What is the difference between demons’ faith and saving faith?

  3. What rebuke does James give (20)? How did he support his teaching about faith and deeds through Abraham’s example (21-23)? How was Abraham’s faith confirmed? What did James conclude (24)?

  4. What was the evidence of Rahab’s faith and what do we learn from her example (25)? How does the analogy of body and spirit drive home James’ point (26)?
