A significant turning point in The Story: Abraham.
The three main Abrahamic religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – are claimed and practiced by over half the world’s population. All honor Father Abraham and tell his story of faith and faithfulness.
This week we will read the original Genesis version of the Abraham story first related within the Hebrew Scriptures, then we will read some of Paul’s theological reflection of Abraham’s significance in light of the Christ event, then we will consider how John (maybe 40 years after Paul) described the relationship of Abraham, Abraham’s descendants and Jesus the Messiah.
