After a magnificent exposition of Jesus as the believer’s High Priest (Heb. 1:1-10:18), the author challenges us to embrace the Lord Jesus by faith, living lives of obedience (10:19-25), sobriety (10:26-31), and endurance (10:32-39). Now he begins to encourage us with examples of believers who did just that—they lived lives of obedience, sobriety, and endurance by faith. But we must understand what faith looks like, which is why we begin our journey through Hebrews 11 by understanding the sphere, function, and implications of biblical faith.
