Q&A: How were people saved before Jesus came?
Posted by Jeff on August 29, 2010
Having Scripture as our guide, we get that Jesus is the way to salvation. He said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14.6, NIV). But what about the time before Jesus came? How were people saved then?
It sounds strange, but they were saved the same way then as we are now: by God’s grace, through faith. How was that possible? Listen here to find out.
This message is based on Hebrews 11.1-12 and John 8.31-59. There are other questions that are involved, of course, especially as it relates to the place of the Jewish people in salvation history, but grace and faith remain the criteria for salvation.
Your thoughts are welcome.
