James 2:15

If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
Read Chapter 2


AD 735
It is obvious that words alone are not going to help someone who is naked and hungry. Someone whose faith does not go beyond words is useless. Such faith is dead without works of Christian love which alone can bring it back to life.

Hilary of Arles

AD 449
These are the words of faith, spoken to those who know that there is only one God, who is the Father of all his children. True love has two sides to it- help for the body and help for the soul. Here James concentrates on the first of these because he is speaking especially to those who are rich.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
