Lesson 2: The Gospel to Abraham (Genesis 12:1-3)

Related Media

God promises. Time passes. Everything seems to stay much the same. And then God speaks to a man like Abram (later Abraham) and gives him a message that reignites the plan never forgotten and brings a new sense of hope for redemption. And that’s what is seen in Genesis 12. Following an extended genealogy from Noah down to Abram’s father, Terah, Moses traces what hasn’t happened yet—the birth of the awaited offspring, the anticipated serpent-crusher. Did God decide after some contemplation that people were still just too wicked or that it was going to be too much work to make a way for the promised one he told Adam and Eve about all those years before? In looking at the account of Abraham, Pastor Daniel explores how the gospel of Jesus Christ was further revealed. He states, “The gospel to Abraham proclaims that there is a king who will establish a restored kingdom for all who will enter through faith.”
