Transcript of Religion 7 Unit 1: Covenant (Abraham)

The five parts of God’s Covenant with Abraham:
1. God calls Abram out of his homeland
2. Abram responds to God’s call and moves to Canaan
3. God establishes His covenant with Abraham (two signs: name change and circumcision)
4. Isaac is born
5. Abraham is tested

Genesis 12:
God calls Abram and… asks him to move from his homeland to a new nation.

Promises:
1) I’ll bless you
2) I’ll make your name great
3) All families will find blessing in you
4) God appears and says he will give the land to Abram’s descendants.

Abram responds by building an altar and worshipping God’s name.

Genesis 12:4: “Abram went as the Lord directed him.”
DO NOT FEAR
“Do not fear, Abraham! I am your shield; I will make your reward very great.” Genesis 15: 1

Abram complains to God: You haven’t given me a son…
God promises Abram again...He WILL fulfill their covenant

Side story:
Sarai's maid-servant Hagar has a son by Abraham named Ishmael
Sarai mistreated Hagar so badly that she ran away
Angel of the Lord promises Hagar that her descendants will be numerous, too
The Mountain...
Genesis 22:
God asks Abraham to sacrifice his son as a burnt offering
Isaac asks where the ram for the sacrifice is
Abraham tells Isaac: God will provide
Abraham is about to slaughter Isaac when an angel stops him
God promises again that Abraham’s descendants will find blessing

“God will provide…” Genesis 22:8

God's Covenant with Abram. Abraham? Abramaham?
What do we learn?

Whatever his name is, it's a cool story.

LET’S MAKE
A DEAL
Genesis 17:

God promises that Abraham will be the father of many nations
He changes his name to ABRAHAM and Sarai’s to SARAH
In return, all males must be circumcised at eight days old.



God promises a son through Sarah
Abraham FALLS ON HIS FACE AND LAUGHS
Tells Abraham to call his son Isaac
The Birth of Isaac:
Genesis 21:

They name their baby Isaac...
as God asked!
When he is eight days old, they circumcise him...
as God asked!

Why is it important that they did what God asked?

“God has given me cause to laugh, and all who hear of it will laugh with me.” (Genesis 21:6)


Genesis 18:
Three “men” come to visit

They know that Sarah laughed when she heard she would bear a son

They predict that within a year, it will happen

“Is anything too marvelous for the Lord to do?” Genesis 18:14
Angels visit
If God called YOU and asked you to move away from everything you've ever known, what would your response be?
Why do you think God makes a promise to Hagar?
What do we learn from this?
What do we learn?
Why is it important that they did what God asked?
