James and Paul: Differences in Focus?

The biggest challenge when studying James is actually studying James.

Our Community Group leader - Tim - has done a phenomenal job helping us listen to James as we study James.  There's a temptation to jump over to Paul or Martin Luther, but Tim has helped us resist that temptation.

And here's something we noticed tonight: James and Paul are focused on different things.

Both Paul and James have conversations about faith and works

James focuses faith without works vs. faith and works working together
Paul focuses on the emptiness of works without faith
Both Paul and James have something valuable to say, but they have different things to say.

Let's listen to them both.
