Sunday, June 17

They received a favorable witness because of their faith.—Heb. 11:39.

 

Faithful ones mentioned in Hebrews chapter 11 died before the promised “offspring,” Jesus Christ, opened the way to heavenly life. (Gal. 3:16) Nevertheless, they will be resurrected to perfect human life in an earthly paradise. (Ps. 37:11; Isa. 26:19; Hos. 13:14) Hebrews 11:13 says of some who lived in pre-Christian times: “In faith all of these died, although they did not receive the fulfillment of the promises; but they saw them from a distance and welcomed them.” One of these was Abraham. Did he keep clear in mind the happy hope of life under the promised “offspring”? Jesus gave a clear answer to that question when he said to his opposers: “Abraham your father rejoiced greatly at the prospect of seeing my day, and he saw it and rejoiced.” (John 8:56) The same was true of Sarah, Isaac, Jacob, and many others who focused their hope on the future Kingdom, “whose designer and builder is God.”—Heb. 11:8-11. w16.10 3:4, 5
