Tamar | Women in Jesus’ Genealogy

By John Ankerberg Show Staff / August 31, 2021

Is Believing in God Enough?

By John Ankerberg Show Staff / March 16, 2020

James’ epistle has always been considered a very practical approach to our faith. He still affirms that we are saved by faith alone, but if works are not coming in response to our faith, it is a dead faith. It is important to understand that James and Paul are not in conflict with each other.
