We now come to the 11th chapter of Genesis and it is here that the genealogy of Abram is recorded.
Remember, now, that Moses wrote this historical book so the Israelites coming out of Egypt would know whom they were and from whence they came.
The story of Abraham and Sarah and their progeny begins right here. It’s a story of epic proportions that will take us all the way to the very last verse in Genesis.
It’s an evocative story filled with acts of faith, love, hate, sadness, joy, violence, sensuality, infidelity, irony, intrigue and inspiration that will surely move you to tears as you immerse yourself in their saga.
Abraham was God’s faithful servant through whom all have been blessed. As we are told in Genesis 26:
I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and will give them all these lands, and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because Abraham obeyed me and did everything I required of him, keeping my commands, my decrees and my instructions.
