This chapter outlines for us the names and stories of many Old Testament saints that lived by faith.

They are an example to us, both revealing our need for faith and proving most certainly that a walk of faith is possible.

This list is only the beginning. Our “great cloud of witnesses” are far too many to list in one book of the Bible alone.

Hebrews goes on to describe their great victory in battles, their obedience through hardship, and their escape from persecution.
