To begin this second effort, letâ€™s refresh ourselves to some thoughts from the Word of God. The apostle Paul stated of the things the Hebrews and Israel went through and which are recounted in the Old Testament, â€œNow, all these things happened to them for examples, and they are written for our admonition upon whom the ends of the ages are come.â€ (1 Corinthians 10:11) This is where we will begin our examination of patterns in Christianity.
I just came across a great post at Cafe Apocalypsis offering a discussion on the phrase “from faith to faith” as found in Romans 1:17. We have been studying this verse in our Wednesday evening Bible study. Please check out the Cafe Apocalypsis material here. It is worthy of your time and consideration.
By the way, I agree with Barth and Wright on the meaning of “from faith to faith.”
