Since I have obtained help that comes from God, to this day I stand and testify to both small and great, saying nothing else than what the prophets and Moses said would take place--
because Herod was in awe of John and was protecting him, knowing he was a righteous and holy man. When Herod heard him he would be very disturbed, yet would hear him gladly.
He was trying to see who Jesus was, but he was not able because of the crowd, since he was a short man.
Herod was very glad to see Jesus; for a long time he had wanted to see Him, because he had heard about Him and was hoping to see some miracle performed by Him.
So they said, "Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved-- you and your household."
I testified to both Jews and Greeks about repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus.
yet we know that no one is justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ. And we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law no human being will be justified.
and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
I only want to learn this from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law or by hearing with faith?
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Messiah has been born of God, and everyone who loves the parent also loves his child.
Dear friends, although I was eager to write you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write and exhort you to contend for the faith that was delivered to the saints once for all.
Here is the endurance of the saints, who keep the commandments of God and the faith in Jesus."
