Men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
They hazarded their lives in their:
*Reputation – with the religious crowd/pharisees
*Relationships – not all agreed with them
verse 3 says the church helped them along – meaning some went with them, but not all will partner with you in the work, some will walk away
*Riches – verse 3 says the church helped them along the way – also this implies with their physical needs. We need to trust and be willing to hazard or risk our riches. We are not in this for material gain
