NET © Notes

tn Grk “brothers.” See note on the phrase “brothers and sisters” in 1:2.

tn Grk “the faith,” referring to the kind of faith just described: faith without works. The article here is anaphoric, referring to the previous mention of the noun πίστις (pisti") in the verse. See ExSyn 219.

sn The form of the question in Greek expects a negative answer.
