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.
