I notice in Romans 4:19-21 that Abraham is represented as not staggering in unbelief at the announcement that Sara will bear a child - but we’ve read the Old Testament - we know perfectly well that he actually laughed at it.
I notice in Hebrews 11:11 that Sara is represented as having conceived when she was past age in faith because she judged him faithful that had promised - but again, we know she laughed and lied about laughing.
I read a commentator’s explanation that once the blood of Christ was shed for those sins, they were no longer brought up in the New Testament. It seemed an intriguing explanation. It occurred to me that David’s sin with Bathsheba is never brought up in the New Testament - nor Lot’s (of all people) - nor Noah’s drunkenness. In fact, I’m having a hard time thinking of any OT believer whose sin is mentioned after the shedding of Christ’s blood - which is giving a rising credence in my mind to this theory. But I want to be careful before I commit to it - so I thought I would ask if any of you can think of an OT believer whose sins are mentioned after the gospels.
Thank you in advance for your help!
