In this final installment, Peter speaks a little longer than in most of the videos. He discusses the origin of some of the words that are used in this passage and then he addresses some key concepts. Most importantly, he gives four possible ways to think about James’ teaching that people will get better if church leaders pray for them. Peter thinks there is a ditch on either side of this issue that ought to be avoided, but that there are two rich possibilities between them. One focuses on the psychological benefits of community, and the other explores the notion that spiritual power flows through the new community when many individual parts work together.
