Since faith in Christ is absolutely indispensable for salvation; and since by faith in Christ the people of the O. T., like those of the N.T., must have been saved, since there is salvation in no other name (Acts 2, 42): we must be able to find this faith expressed or implied in the O.T. There is sufficient testimony in the N.T. for this faith of the people of the Old Covenant, and so for Christians our problem is no problem; but when we deal with Jews, and when we consider the matter historically, we are thrown upon the O.T. alone, and from that alone we must prove our propositions.
