Saints     who are they?

GREEK –  one word (61x) – hagios = sacred, blameless, (most) holy

HEBREW – four words (39x)- chaviyd (19x) = pious, godly, good, holy, merciful. – qadosh (13x) = sacred, an angel , holy. – qaddiysh (6x) = holy. – qodesh (1x)=hallowed, holiness, most holy.cartoon

A reading of all the references to SAINTS listed below can bring only one conclusion. Saints are living believers.
