Faith in the New Testament

[T]he idea of faith has intrigued me for awhile and I’ve decided to launch into a blog series that will probably take me months to get through. Our English word “faith” is used more than two hundred times in the NIV version of the New Testament in the Bible (excluding the use of it in the headings). This series will take a look at them all and wrestle with the idea of where faith comes from and what it should cause us to do. My goal is at the end of this (which seems a bit far off at this point) that we would have a more accurate Biblical understanding of this topic. This will also serve as a useful resource to myself, and hopefully others, in teaching or referencing this prominent Biblical topic.

In addition to this landing page with links to all of them as they are written, there will be 21 posts through all the books that use the word faith in the New Testament.

  1. The question of faith
  2. Matthew
  3. Mark
  4. Luke
  5. John
  6. Acts
  7. Romans Pt.1 (chapters 1-3)
  8. Romans Pt.2
  9. Romans Pt.3
  10. 1 and 2 Corinthians
  11. Galatians
  12. Ephesians
  13. Philippians and Colossians
  14. 1 and 2 Thessalonians
  15. 1 Timothy
  16. 2 Timothy
  17. Titus and Philemon
  18. Hebrews Pt.1
  19. Hebrews Pt.2
  20. James
  21. 1 and 2 Peter, 1 John, Jude
  22. Revelation

On a side note, this is the message I preached on faith that got this idea going for me and I’ve been reflecting on it since then.

I love this idea/series. Im seriously gonna follow this....although I'm dissapointed we will not be discovering further, and deeper truths that are contained in the Holy Spirit inspired headings. On a more serious note, I feel I have the gift of faith as it has shown up in many different assessments through the years. So this series intrigues me. Looking forward to it.
