"The patriarchs, prophets, and certain other Old Testament figures have been and always will be honored as saints in all the Church’s liturgical traditions." CCC 61 Questions Covered: 16:11 - Are there people from thousands of years ago who didn’t know God who went to heaven? 20:54 - How can someone (like Adam or Eve) become a saint without knowing Christ? 23:34 - Do you consider Solomon to be a saint? Why or why not? 31:08 - Why don’t we speak more about saints like Lazarus? 34:54 - What sort of hope did the Old Testament saints have? Did they hope for heaven? 37:22 - How did women enter the old covenant when the men were entered in by circumcision? 44:18 - Where is it in the Bible that Lucifer thought he was the chosen one, but that Jesus was sent in his stead? 46:15 - Is Eve considered to be a saint? 48:53 - Were the people in Abraham’s day considered to be cavemen, or were cavemen before Abraham? 51:05 - Steve, you used to be Baptist and lived a Christian life and believed you were saved. Now that you’re Catholic, why can’t you believe that anymore? Resources Mentioned: The Everlasting Man by G.K. Chesterton
