WHAT IS FAITH?

***

things-hoped-for substance

evidence of things not seen

faith’s definition

***

Dante has done his reading for the examination. Saint Peter is the author of 1 Peter and 2 Peter in the New Testament; these books are letters. Dante has read these books, as well as the writings of Paul, including Hebrews. Dante’s definition comes from Paul’s letter to the Hebrews (11:1): “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (King James Version).
