James 2:1-26

Chunk for January 29
James 2:1-26 ESV

Say: What did James intend to say to his original readers?
(Resources: grammar, backgrounds, flow of thought, word use, literary allusions)

Mean: What is the Key Idea?
(Resources: brain, prayer, checking what others think)

Do: How should we respond?
(Resources: culture, current issues, personal life, church life, etc. + the Key Idea)

Helpful article on bible study: Studying the Scriptures by Kenneth Boa

NOTE: Laura is swamped with here way-too-soon-due thesis. Not sure if prose commentary will be added at all this week. I'll not be posting my key idea* until after our discussion Tuesday. Write your own!

As always, feel free to discuss in the comments.

* If you want to know what a Key Idea might look like, check previous weeks, BUT don't feel pressured to conform.
