Romans 10.
Faith cometh by hearing.

Note the questions to verses 14 and 15.
'Report' (16) = The thing you hear.
'Believe' (in Isa. 53:1) is 'Say Amen to'.
Faith and the Word (2 Tim. 3:15).

Ephesians 2:1-10.
Faith links grace
and works.

The word 'that' in verse 8 does not refer to 'faith',
but to the whole scheme of salvation.
'Faith' leads to 'Works' -- Not of works ...
His workmanship ... unto good works.
Hebrews 11:1-31.
Faith the title deeds.
 
'Substance'.  This word has recently been discovered
among ancient documents and means 'title deeds'.
Abraham's tent = title deeds;
Abraham's city = thing hoped for.
Note seven examples in 4-11 and seven
examples in 17-31.
Habakkuk 1:1-4;
Habakkuk 2:1-4;
Habakkuk 3:17-19.
The just shall live by faith.

Habakkuk's test. 'How long shall I cry' (1.2).
Habakkuk's trust. 'Though it tarry, wait' (2:3).
Habakkuk's triumph.  'Yet I will rejoice' (3:18).
