In making plain points of counsel and building faith in God's Word as a harmonious whole, James makes appropriate references to Abraham's works of faith, to Rahab's demonstration of faith by works, to Job's faithful endurance, and to Elijah's reliance on prayer. (James. 2:21-25; 5:11, 17, 18; Genesis 22:9-12; Joshua 2:1-21; Job 1:20-22; 42:10; 1 Kings 17:1; 18:41-45.
