We will continue this week considering the many people reference in Hebrews 11, which is often called "The Hall of Faith". To the Jewish-Hebrew reader (because this book was written for them), these names are very familiar, and their histories well-known. This may not be so among Christians today. So we are mining the riches of God's Word in the Old Testament and gaining insight for our lives, as Paul said in Romans 15:4:
"For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope."
