Rev. Stephen Preus, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Vinton, Iowa, studies Hebrews 11:13 on today’s episode: “These all died in faith, not having received the things promised, but having seen them and greeted them from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth.” Rev. Preus talks about the eschatological character of faith (and what eschatology is), what it means to see the promises, and confessing the faith.
“Heroes of Faith Alone” is a mini-series on Sharper Iron featuring a step-by-step walk through Hebrews 11, the “faith” chapter. Learn the legacy of our ancient fathers in the faith and bolster your own conviction.
