Sometimes preachers have more to say than they have time to say it. Such was the case of the author to the Hebrews who wrote “briefly” (13:22).

After spending 31 verses (11;1-30) summarizing the first 5 ¼ books of the Bible, he realizes time is short and summarizes the rest of the Old Testament (and more) in just a few verses (11:32-38). I, however, am not as constrained for time as he was, so we will take two weeks to study his final summary.

This week we will concentrate on the triumphs of faith among the Judges, Prophets, and Kings of Israel (11:32-35a). When you read about their heroic deeds do you sometimes question whether God could ever use you in such a wonderful way? Read the book of Judges! If God can use such flawed men, He can greatly use us also!
