Understanding The Bible
"The Old Testament is Incomplete... Without the New"
J. Deering, AncientPath.net
"They Didn't Get It"
"Now Faith if the ASSURANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR, the CONVICTION OF THINGS NOT SEEN. For by it men of old gained approval.
:6 "Without Faith it is impossible to please Him....
|:13-16 "All these died in faith, without receiving the promises, but having seen them and having welcomed them from a distance, and having confessed that they were strangers and exiles on the earth. For those who say such things make it clear that they are seeking a country of their own. And indeed if they had been thinking of that country from which they went out, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they desire a better country, that is a heavenly one. therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them."|
:32 Gideon, Barak, Sampson, Jephthah, David, Sampson, the Prophets
|:39 "All of these, having gained approval through their faith, did not receive what was promised, because God had provided something better for us, so that apart from us they should not be made perfect.|
