    I think you have hit on it. Heb. 11 speaks of, not all who were saved by faith but, remarkable examples of feats done by regular men and women who struggled with life but, by faith, "attained a good report". I believe this is done for our encouragement.

    I am more surprised that Job is not on the list than Adam.
    Religion is man's attempt to make himself acceptable to God. Christianity is God making man acceptable to Himself.

    More often than not Job, the oldest book of the Bible, is rendered to be tale. Some say written by Solomon.

    I guess I should have been more specific.

    I meant to point out that the list of heros includes those who made a big splash in their times. They made headlines. Job's case was more personal and contained.

    Adam's big splash was mainly negative. If He repented, and I think he must have, it would have been personal.

    Adam was replaced.

    Hebrews 11 is about persons who were commended for their faith.

    What did Adam do by faith?

    "The first man was of the earth, made of dust, the second Man is the Lord from heaven. As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man." (1 Corinthians 15:47-49)

    Aren't they all recorded to impress/encourage us? . . and maybe especially Job? Or perhaps I am not undersstanding the "why" of your question.

    It might also be pointed out that all were carnal.

    Why ?

    DID Adam not have faith ?

    What say you ??

    Because the "subject of conversation" is about the faith of Abel Enoch and Noah ... just because Adam is not mentioned here does not at all refer to Adam having or not having faith .... it's just not being talked about in this passage(s).

    At the point when Adam became a living soul, he was endowed with all the communicable attributes of the Eternal Almighty. This included trust(faith) This trust was not comunicated as grace to a guilty sinner it was communicated in perfection with no need to grow.

    All those in Hebrews 11 were granted grace and trust as gifts that would need to grow and so the exploits referred to in Hebrews 11 records the growth and completion of the trust.
    I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

    "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm".

    I refuse, point blank, to speak peace to the unregenerate, hypocrites, religious dogma lovers and those that oppose the following statement:
    A regenerate man trusts in the evangelism of salvation conditioned on the atoning blood and imputed justness of Messiah alone.
    If you are fully persuaded, by experience, of this delightful, beautiful and life giving doctrine then I love you as a brother.

    Anyone who thinks that salvation is conditioned on anything a man thinks, does or says is atheist. I cannot and will not speak peace to him or her.

    I don't make statements online that I wouldn't repeat in front of my Maker, my grandmother or a judge.

    Hi and whether he , Adam is mention it is hard not to see that Adam and Eve walked by SIGHT !!

    Christ made COATS and SKINS for them to wear and that MEANT , SACRIFICE and it shows that Adam and Eve's sins were covered and all SINS from Adam and all those committed under the Old Covenant and Heb 9:15 is the proof !!

    I believe that the covering of the COATS and SKINS was a type of the ATONEMENT !!

    We know from 1 Cor 13:13 , that mentions FAITH , HOPE and LOVE only Love will remain as , our HOPE is God will be REALIZED and FAITH will be made SIGHT , when we see Christ and only LOVE remains !!
