Series on Hebrews 11 - Christ in the faith of Jacob

Tomorrow Stefano will continue the shared series on Hebrew 11.
The goal is to see Hebrews 11 as a museum gallery full of portraits, but each one of them is pointing to the end of the gallery: that is Christ!

This Sunday Stefano will preach on Hebrews 11:21 - Christ in the faith of Jacob!

By faith Jacob, when dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, bowing in worship over the head of his staff. 
Hebrews 11:21 (ESV)


We may see herein the infinite purity of the divine will, effectually accomplishing its own purposes and designs through the failings and miscarriages of men, without the least mixture with or approbation of their iniquities or miscarriages. So did God accomplish his purpose and promise unto Jacob, by ordering the outward circumstances of the irregular actings of him and his mother unto his own blessed ends.
