Transcript of Old Testament: Unit 1 Lesson 8

Genesis 12
Abram chosen as the father of the nation Israel
What do we learn about Abram as he is introduced?
Does anything indicate that Abram was better than other people? Was he more holy? More gifted?
When God came to Abram and said, "I will make you into a great nation and bless you," was it because Abram had earned a special blessing?
From here on out, God is going to work with Abram's family in a special way and not with the other nations of the Earth. Israel will be his chosen nation.

Why did God choose just one family, out of all people, to become his special people? Did God not care about the rest of the families and nations around the Earth?
Genesis 12:4-7
God gave one more promise to Abram: a promise of land. What land was it?

Why do you think God may have wanted his newly created nation (Israel) to have its own land?

These promises of multiplying Abram's descendants and ruling a piece of the Earth should remind us of something we have read before. Any ideas?
Genesis 11:27-12:3
