Once again the Lenten texts take us through salvation history, starting this time with Abram called to journey in faith "to a land that I will show you," to the Psalmist's confident faith in God's unfailing care, to Paul's emphasis on faith's role in salvation, to the quintessential Johannine confession of faith, "God so loved the world..."

One could focus on any one of the texts individually or else take them collectively.
