Thoughts: Biblical scholars are unsure who was the author of the book of Hebrews. This author knew the Old Testament well, citing people from these scriptures as shining examples of faith.
Some of these people are immediately familiar to us; others are more obscure. Can you match these seven Old Testament people with their brief descriptions?
____ Gideon a. harlot who protected two Israeli spies
____ Samuel b. general who defeated the Ammonites
____ David c. judge who delivered Israel from the Midianites
____ Rahab d. general who led Israel against the Cananites
____ Barak e. man who was known for his great strength
____ Jephthah f. second king of Israel
____ Samson g. prophet and judge
Discussion: Who of these seven people – in your opinion – is most admirable?
Activity: Choose a lesser known person and learn about him or her.
