When we look at the list of faith giants in Hebrews 11, we find only one verse each for Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. In fact, when we see these three, what is listed about their life is not how they lived, but how they died.
By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, and worshiped, leaning on the top of his staff. By faith Joseph, when he was dying, made mention of the departure of Israel, and gave instructions concerning his bones.
Did you ever wonder why the Lord chose these events in their lives to show their faith? Is there something more here that meets the eye? Keep listening.
The following is a study of Hebrews 11:20-22.
