3. How Were People Saved Before the Coming of Christ?

Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob,
Sarah, Joseph, Moses' parents, Moses, Rahab,
Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel and the Prophets,
Looking forward to the city. [2x]
The city with foundations who's architect and builder is God, La[la[la[longing for heaven.

All of these people were still living by faith when they died.
They did not receive the things promised
They only saw them from afar
They only saw and welcomed them from afar.

Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob,
Sarah, Joseph, Moses' parents, Moses, Rahab,
Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel and the Prophets, La[la[longing for heaven.

How were people saved before the coming of Christ?
People were saved by believing, believing in a Savior to come.
Hebrews 11, they believed in a Savior to come.

Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob,
Sarah, Joseph, Moses' parents, Moses, Rahab,
Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel and the Prophets, La[la[longing for heaven.
Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob,
Sarah, Joseph, Moses' parents, Moses, Rahab,
Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel and the Prophets,
They believed in a Savior to come.
