by faith, thru faith, with faith, in faith

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1 (NAS)

Hebrews has many instances of faith, the triumphs of faith, the great heros of faith... 
It’s overwhelming for me to ‘take in’ Hebrews 11.  To fully understand.  To totally grasp.  To identify with.

There are a few web sites I often use to compare explanations.  Breaking down the verses into sections helps to make it clearer for me:
What is True Faith?
Hebrews 11:1–3

Dying in Faith
Hebrews 11:13–16

Examples of Faith
Hebrews 11:24–12:2
Hebrews 11:8–23.

Faith and Evidence
Hebrews 11:3–7

Verse 7:  By faith Noah, being warned by God about things not yet seen,...

Verse 8:  By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed ...and he went out, not knowing where he was going.

Verse 32:  Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets, Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets...

Like I said before, Hebrews shouts of faith!
Seriously, how is my faith?
