Study Guide: The Letter of James Read The introduction (NT 386-87) and the entire letter. Summarize James’ comments about wealth and warnings about the dangers of affluence (James 2:1-7, 4:13-17, 5:1-6, Compare with Deut 24: 10-15 and Sir 34:24-26). James 2:14-26. This passage is a carefully constructed argument in the form of a “diatribe.” A diatribe is an argument that proceeds by stating the view with which one disagrees, then showing what is wrong with it. The argument begins with verse 14, which what it intends to prove. Summarize the thesis statement in 2:14: 2:15-16 serve as an illustration and 2:17 restates the main thesis. The diatribe begins in 2:8 with the statement of the position with which James disagrees, put in quotes and attributed to “someone.” Restate the part in quotes. Don’t copy it; write what you think it MEANS for “someone” to say this. What’s the point? Why would someone say this? Restate in your own words how James answers the position in quotes. His answer is in 2:18.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
