Questions for further study

  • When you read verse 13, do you see the dynamic James in confronting?
  • What are the challenges/sinful areas you face that would cause James to look at you and say, "do not boast and be false to the truth."? (vs 15-18)
  • What is the point James is making in verse 16 when he states, "this is not wisdom that comes down from above...?"
  • Verse 17 is still addressing the application/teaching of the knowledge/wisdom that we have. Contrast verse 17 with jealousy and selfish ambition from verse 14.
  • Who benefits from the motivation of the person in verse 14?
  • Who benefits from the motivation of the person in verse 17 & 18?
  • Spend some time contrasting the two lists of characteristics given.
  • What does this passage teach you about God?
  • What does this passage teach you about mankind/yourself?
  • How does this passage point to Jesus/teach the Gospel?
