485. They Did Not Receive the Promise

The writer of Hebrews spent nearly the entire book comparing the former covenant to the New Covenant. Chapter 11 is sometimes referred to as the hall of faith as it reflects on well-known people from the Old Testament. The subject of faith wasn't a new topic from the writer, but was the result of what was said in the ten chapters leading up to it. Though these elders had gained approval and saw tremendous acts occur from God through faith, they did not receive what was promised. Christ is that promise that we've obtained in the New Covenant. He is the very substance of what was hoped for and provided something better for us with His perfection.
