Elpis is the English transliteration of the koine Greek word elpis, hope.  In this, its nominative form, the noun "hope" is used only nine times in the New Testament, and not at all in the gospels, perhaps surprisingly.  Luke uses it twice in Acts, and Paul the other seven times in his epistles.  I point this out because this hope is not the nebulous, sometimes dreamy "hope" that we humans do.  This is the touchable, visible, even smell-able hope that God sent into the world in the person of Jesus, the hope for us humans and the rest of creation to become what God intended for us to be.
