The author of Hebrews is about to illustrate what many call God’s “Hall of Faith” down through the ages of Israel’s history—men who were noted only because they trusted God. His point is that only faith can bring God’s approval. “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him” (Heb. 11:6). Before he mentions these great men of faith, he shows that faith in God and in His Word is the only thing that can bring clarity in understanding the nature of our very existence.
