They, Being Dead, Still Speak

Artwork for Character Counts: Building a Life That Pleases God

Over the vast expanse of Scripture, a variety of admirable people cross our paths. Because God not only preserved the record of their lives but also used each one to model particular character traits, it seems appropriate for us to become better acquainted with both the people and their individual qualities, which are worth emulating. By way of introduction, we want to get our foot in the door of this series by looking at the great biographical chapter in the New Testament—Hebrews 11—which has been called “God's Hall of Faith.” These men and women lived lives worthy of being remembered, so let's remember them—for they, being dead, still speak.
