In Romans and 2 Peter, hope and faith seem to be similar. Are they?
Thanks for your question.
I'm not sure that there is much difference - different sides of the same coin perhaps?
Faith = pistis; belief; in the NT of a conviction or belief respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things,
Hope = elpis; joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation
If anything Faith concerns belief in the elements of the Gospel while Hope seems to be the earnest expectation of that in which one has faith.
