The Beginnings of Abraham

So we’re finishing our mini-series tonight on the story of Abram and we’re in Genesis 14. And at the center of Genesis 14 is the story of Melchizedek. And one popular Old Testament scholar today says that “Melchizedek is the most complex subject in all of Biblical studies.” And so it’s kind of silly to do thirty minutes on Melchizedek, but that’s what we have. And we’re going...

The Beginnings of Abraham

We are in a mini-series on the life of Abraham and tonight we will be in Genesis chapter 13. Well what do we have here? What’s going on in this passage? And it might not seem like it, but you can actually peer here into the very essence of human sin, into the very essence of our sin, of humanity’s sin. So we’re going to look at three...

The Beginnings of Abraham

So this story is about Abraham going down to Egypt at the beginning and then getting kicked out of Egypt at the end.

We did it two weeks ago if you were here, and this time we’re looking at the Tower of Babel story in context, in a bigger context, in the context it’s set in. And that means we’re looking at the Babel story again in the context of genealogies. And...

The Beginnings of Abraham

We start a new mini-series tonight in the month of October called, “The Beginnings of Abraham.” And our first story in the series is from Genesis chapter 11, verses 1 to 9, which is the tower of Babel, which actually tells the story of the beginning of Abraham’s family. But we’re not going to talk about that this week; we’re going to spend two weeks on the tower...
