Of Whom the World Was Not Worthy



The Forbidden Book  by Karel Ooms portrays a Protestant man and his daughter during the time of Roman Catholic persecution. They are studying the Scriptures together, and have just heard a knock at the door.


Still others had trial of mockings and scourgings, yes, and of chains and imprisonment. They were stoned, they were sawn in two, were tempted, were slain with the sword. They wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented — of whom the world was not worthy. (Hebrews 11:36-38)

    What a great painting! The expression of their faces say more than 1000 words!
    Thank you again David for your encouragement to us this week end to love God ultimately.
    Lord teach us to love You, love Your Word, come what may. To love It despite oppression (which is more peer pressure than anything else in my case) and trends of this day and age.

  2. David Says:

    Thanks Faly. It was a delight to be with you all.

    The faith wall in Hebrews is for me one of the most challenging passages in Scripture. In are the hopes and joys of all the years and the sufferings of the present.
