    Times up!

    Sarah and Rahab are the two women specifically named as heroes of faith in Hebrews chapter 11, popularly known as the Bible’s Hall of Fame of faith. Others are mentioned anonymously when the writer realized he did not have space for everyone he was wanting to include.

    Second question’s answer: Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah (Daniel 1:6-7 and 2:17 )
    The significance is that these names refer to the God of Israel, God Most High. Their new names replaced His Name for the names of the idols of Babylon.

    Third question: When the rulers marveled at the boldness of these uneducated and untrained men, they attributed this to the fact that these men had been with Jesus. (Acts 4:12)
    Have you spent time with Jesus today?
