We have been going through the eleventh chapter of Hebrews and we're going to return to that tonight, but by no means are we going to complete the text before us and I had no intention of doing that because it opens up to us so much Old Testament scripture.

Hebrews chapter 11, this is known as the faith chapter, stretches into the beginning of chapter 12, as we will see. We have been reminded all the way through this chapter that anyone who has a relationship with God has that relationship based on faith and not of works. We have started all the way back in the book of Genesis to see the examples of faith, or as they're often known, the heroes of faith. And we progressed through the patriarchs, arrived at Moses and that took us through the books, the early books of the Bible known as the Pentateuch.

As we come to verse 30 and following, we pick up the account in Joshua and Judges and references are made to people who lived in the time of the writing of 1 and 2 Samuel and then 1 and 2 Kings. And we sweep all the way from there in these final verses through the prophets, you could say all the way up to John the Baptist. So from verse 30 where we are introduced to the walls of Jericho, the entry into the promised land, we go all the way through the prophets in just those few verses. Obviously not covering all of them, but representative names are given that sweep through that period....
