Bible Term: Hope

In the Bible, hope is a confident expectation that something will happen; it’s not merely a desire or wishful thinking. Followers of Jesus are often said to have a hope in him (Colossians 1:5).

Faith, hope, and love are a major triad in the Bible (1 Corinthians 13:13, Colossians 1:5, 1 Thessalonians 1:3, and 1 Thessalonians 5:8).

A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 700-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and numerous books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
