Hebrews 11, part 4

The second half of Hebrews 11 covers all of the Old Testament after the first five books, from Joshua to the end. As a Hebrew reader would be intimately familiar with these references, they are simply listed as references, only with a name, or even a general occurrence in the Scripture.

For the 21st century reader, a bit more time looking into some of these faith-filled individuals is necessary to gain better insight from their examples. What better way to close the year than with a multitude of encouraging testimonies from those that have gone before us!
