211Was not Abraham our fatherjustified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar ?
You see that 2faith was working with his works, and aas a result of the 3works, faith was bperfected ;
and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "4AND ABRAHAMBELIEVEDGOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS," and he was called5the friend of God.
You see that a man is justified by works and not by faithalone.
In the sameway, was not 6Rahab the harlotalsojustified by works7when she received the messengers and sent them out by anotherway ?
For just as the bodywithout the spirit is dead, soalso8faithwithoutworks is dead.
