Faith comes by hearing
Hearing is more important than seeing. Many saw Jesus work miracles; they did not hear the Word. Seeing isn't believing; hearing is.
- "Thus faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ" (Rom 10:17).
It's funny--we tend to say, "Do you see what I mean?" instead of "Do you hear what I mean?" We shift from what is actually taking place (hearing) to the act of understanding meaning (seeing).
