Saints

Just an observation, but I was searching the Bible the other day and noted that the word “saint” does not appear anywhere in scripture. It’s always “saints”, plural, in reference to the people of God together.

In the Old Testament the bulk of the references are in the Psalm and Daniel. In the New Testament the bulk of the references are in Acts, the letters of Paul, and Revelation.

What does that say about the church do you think? What does that say about how we should refer to historic church leaders and apostles?
