The Roots of Abraham

Hope Sabbath School Episode 6

Added 03 May 2022

In this central section of Genesis (12-22), Abraham leaves his past to follow G\od's call.  As a result, Abraham always is on the move, always a migrant, which is why he also is called a “stranger” (Gen. 17:8). In his journeying, Abraham is suspended in the void—without his past, which he has lost, and without his future, which he does not see.  In the New Testament, Abraham is one of the most mentioned figures from the Old Testament, and we will start to see why.
