Christopher A. Richardson examines the passages about faith and confidence in Hebrews, and it shows the importance of this letter to our understanding of Christology of the early Church. Instead of dealing with the pistis Christou debates in Paul's letter, the author makes it clear that Jesus is our own faith in God theologically articulated most clearly in Hebrews. This belief has been incorporated as a model throughout the letter, with Heb. 12.2 represents the climax. The reader should thus. This perfect example of unshakable confidence with the ancestors in Heb 11 compare. It is clear that at first reminded of this in order to increase the value of the person and deeds of Jesus, by being portrayed as true, but incomplete apprehension of the one who embodies the virtue of faith and expresses perfectly.
