For time would fail me to tell of [those who] were killed with the sword…” This is a continuation of the series on each story contained in verse 32. Professor Lewis talks about the stories of those killed by the sword such as the prophets of Yahweh who were killed by Jezebel, the stories of martyrs in 1 Maccabees in the Apocrypha, and those in New Testament times who were martyred before Hebrews was written.
