Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Hebrews: Week 4, Day 2: Hebrews 11:17-40


Abraham had faith that God would raise Isaac from the dead if he sacrified him. By faith, Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau, and Jacob blessed each of Joseph’s sons. Joseph spoke of the Exodus from faith, and Moses’s parents hid him out of faith.

By faith, Moses chose to leave Egypt and be mistreated along with the people of God. His disgrace for Christ was of greater value than material rewards. He persevered and kept the Passover. The people of God crossed the Red Sea out of faith, and the walls of Jericho fell out of faith. Rahab was preserved out of faith.

By faith, countless others followed and conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained God’s promises. Some were tortured and flogged; others were stoned and killed. God has planned a way for them to be made perfect.


4 ) They all do, really. I like Rahab because she was a Gentile who had faith. Abraham was about to kill his son so that’s incredible there, too.

5 ) Faith that all barriers will be removed in my walk in God’s will.

6 ) Keep doing the right thing and putting one foot in front of the other.


The pillars of faith are listed here, from Abraham to the prophets and the countless others who suffered for Christ. Very inspiring. Very humbling. And very encouraging to keep doing God’s will in your life.
