Despite the unfolding of God’s promises as seen in Noah and now in Abraham, there’s a nagging question… what’s the deal with human nature?!? Sin is still present. Mankind has as Thomas Schreiner said “a depth of corruption that still inhabits the heart.” The world is spiraling and then what happens? God intervenes. The account of Abraham is where we see God begin moving humanity towards blessing.
Scripture: Genesis 11:27-12:20; Mark 1:14-15; Matthew 1:1; Galatians 3:16
