HOW WERE THE OLD TESTAMENT SAINTS SAVED?

H. A. Ironside was traveling and dropped in on a Sunday school class. The unprepared teacher asked how Old Testament saints were saved and somebody answered, "By keeping the law."

The teacher said, "Correct!"

Ironside raised his hand and said, "Romans 3:28 says it's not by the law."

The teacher responded, "Oh, that's right, sorry. So how were Old Testament saints saved?"

Somebody else answered, "By making sacrifices."

"Correct!"

Ironside raised his hand and said, "Hebrews says the blood of bulls and goats is not sufficient."

"Oh yeah...why don't you just tell us how!"

"The same way we are today, by faith!"

(From a sermon by Jerry Shirley, The Gospel According to Abraham, 4/27/2011)
