Challenge task 2 0f 2, Inject the post variable

Getting: Bummer! The second argument to render() needs to have the 'posts' variable as the value of its 'posts' attribute.

Just not sure where to go next. Tried some stuff. I'm sure I'm missing something simple. Does anyone have a suggestion? Thanks for your help.

app.js
'use strict';

var express = require('express'),
  posts = require('./mock/posts.json');

var app = express();

app.set('view engine', 'jade');
app.set('views', __dirname + '/templates')

app.get('/', function(req, res){
  res.render('main', {posts: 'posts'})
});

app.listen(3000, function() {
  console.log("The frontend server is running on port 3000!");
});
