    Faith comes by hearing by the word.... Thus revelation.. It being revealed to you.remembered unless given you cannot receive. Hearing Jesus,being spoken by the holy ghost.the word(Thus Jesus) became flesh and dwelt among us.and now in us and made manifest by the holy spirit...

    What does it mean faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

    With all do respect, never is there a need to learn the Greek or Hebrew in order to understand the Bible. The King James Bible IS "the literal translation." Anybody who tries to change the precious words of God is deceived into making themselves the final authority as opposed to the Bible/God the final authority.


    How does one come to have faith in Christ? By hearing. What must one hear in order to have faith in Christ? The word of God. When one hears the Gospel of Christ and believes it, they have faith.

    We have the Bible, they had writings, prophets, and the apostles went out to preach as well.

    V 17 is what youre asking about. The second half of this chapter is filled with rhetorical questions that Paul ends up answering. He is making a case against Israel not having faith and why the gospel has been committed to the Gentiles.

    You are correct. A person does not have to learn Greek and Hebrew to understand the English bible, and I would never tell anyone that. I believe it is a great tool for studying. It has helped me a lot. But that is just for me personally. I would never tell you or anyone else that they need to learn Greek. I think it would be great if we all knew it, but again, that's an individual's choice. If Greek offends you, I would for sure stay away from it.

    I was simply trying to give an accurate representation of where faith comes from. If there is anything in my answer to the original question that you see in error, please let me know. If I may ask, you say that the King James Bible is "the literal translation." How do you know that? Like most English Bibles, it is a translation from Greek. So how do you know it is "the literal translation" without just taking someone's word for it?

    I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the King James Bible. It is the only English bible I fully trust, and it is the only one I use in my study. I believe it to be the most accurate translation. But it is a translation. And as far as Greek goes, I don't have the time to sit down with the Textus Receptus and the King James Bible and do a side by side, word for word check to see if it is a "literal translation." So just like you, I'm stuck with just taking someone's word for it that the translators made no errors.
  • Jesse for verse 9
    The terms "by," used twice in the Greek text for this Verse is actually the preposition "out of," as a source.

    We know from scripture that faith is a fruit of God's Spirit. It is not of man. Faith is produced by God's Spirit. We cannot produce biblical faith ourselves. We have human faith, but that is different than the faith that the bible speaks of. Faith is a word that describes the presence and activity of God's Spirit in a believer's life. The word faith itself literally means persuasion.

    The literal translation from the Greek text for Romans 10:17 should read "So then faith comes from "out of" hearing, and hearing from the word of God."

    Faith comes to us from out of hearing God's word. His Spirit ministers to us and persuades us and gives us the faith to do what God wants us to do out of the hearing of His word.

    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Now, a lot of people will tell you that you will have to do this or that to be saved. They want to add other things. These other things that they say, some we need to do but NOT to be saved. We do them because God said to do them. trust and obey.
  • Matthew
    Who is Esaias?
  • Confused
    John the Baptist came in the spirit of Esaias.
  • Bob Hilt
    Esaias is the NT Greek rendering of the prophet Isaiah. It is the most quoted old testament book in the new testament I believe.
    Compare Isaiah 40:3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
    Matthew 3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight
  • Matthew
    Thank you Bob

    When God showed Peter that sheet with all the UNclean animals that was the Church that was made clean by the BLOOD of Christ Jesus not water baptism that Peter was commanding. By commanding water baptism Peter was making the blood of no effect. Thats y Paul wd not preach water baptism he knew it wd make the blood cross of no effect. In Gods eyes its like saying th blood is insufficient.Ya need h20

    Peter explains this verse and did not say God showed him to eat unclean food, God told him that those who did eat unclean food were able to be saved.
    Acts Chapter 10

    26 But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man.

    27 And as he talked with him, he went in, and found many that were come together.

    28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.
    but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean. for eating unclean foods

    Christ fulfilled the Law perfectly and released us from being under the command of the Mosaic Law. The Law lead us to Christ to be under his law.

    It is important to have faith in our hearts but we must use our speech to bring praise to Jehovah God and to express our beliefs.
  • Vanessa
    it is by hearing and reading that Christ through his death and resurrection he fulfilled the laws, and yet some still follow the laws that were given to Moses. We are to live by faith and call upon Jesus, and thank our Father always. I spend a lot crying thinking how many walk blind to how great our God is and his mercy for all if the seek,they will find, how great is he, Love him always Amen!
  • Jazzymeow
    I really think it's talking bout feeling. You know God doesn't judge so much in words. More so the m9tives of using those words. I'd rather come to God with even one honest thought, not being able to understand a word to say. It's the humility He sees. Then He sees you remember His name. Maybe... Don't hang your hat on it. But that kinda feels right to me.

    Juan: When Lord is All Capital Letters LORD or GOD It's Yahweh or Jehovah. Most People Don't Read LORD as Jehovah or Yahweh. I Use The Name Jehovah. Hebrews Would Not Use Vowels, They Write YHWH. The KJB Translated to LORD. I Read it as Jehovah, You Get a Better Understanding of what's Written. Like in Psalms 110:1 The LORD Said to my Lord: Jehovah Said to Jesus.
    Jehovah, the Lord and Jesus is the same being. It is easy to research starting at John 1:1-3. If there is a God or Lord credited with creating, it is the son and not the father. John 1:10 Now lets go to Genesis 2:4. This is the first verse in the bible that the word Lord was used. According to the bible, the Father and Son share the titles Lord and God. Jesus went by the name Jehovah in the OT
  • Juan
    Lord is a tittle not a name. When the Bible says in the name of the Lord, does it means Jesus, Jehovah, or whom else?
    None of the prophets in the OT dealt with the Father, they only dealt with the Son. So when you see Lord in the OT, it is mostly talking about Jesus, unless it refers to both together like in the book of Psalms. The Lord said to my Lord. Psalms 110
  • Juan Pedraza
    Just like when Jesus was praying to God to take this cup from him, why was he praying to God, if he was God? Matthew 26:39
    In the book of John 1:1 it gives both the father and the son the title as God. Then go to Psalms 110 it says The Lord said to my Lord. This tell us that the Father and the son also go by the title Lord. Then read Hebrews 1:9 and it reads therefore God , even thy God. The son was praying to the Father, to answer your question or to put another way, God the son was praying to God the Father.
