Wrapping up his letter to the Hebrews, the anonymous author concludes by returning to his theme of the sufficiency of Christ. Whether comparing the New Covenant to the Old, or considering how to live out our faith in this hostile world, his message is the same: Jesus is enough!

Hebrews 11 is one of the Bible's crown jewels. With a stunning sweep of Old Testament characters and events, it presents a panorama of what it means to follow the Lord in bold, saving faith. We are given examples ranging from Adam to the prophets, with Noah, Abraham, Moses and many others included. Hebrews 11 is truly the "Hall of Fame" of faith!
