Courage: a hermeneutical key
“Just thinking of the span of biblical history, we think of warriors, patriarchs, prophets, mighty men of valor. We think of the apostles and the early Christian martyrs. We not only know that the word courage is found in scripture in many forms, but we also know that courage is demonstrated by God’s people again and again. . . . Courage is a hermeneutical key to understand the flow of biblical history in the experience of God’s chosen people.”
