Who is Abraham?

Abraham listened to God - Not to men or even himself. Abraham was blessed by God for his listening to him. In fact, Abraham was promised that from his "seed" (offspring) the nations would bless themselves for his listening to God. He was also told that his seed would become like the countless stars of the heavens. Compare Genesis 22 15-18 and Genesis 18:17 and Genesis 17:13 where even foreigners were allowed to be part of the covenant. (Concerning the thought of his seed taking possession of the gate of his enemies as mentioned in Genesis 22:17, this can be taken in a literal way when the Hebrews conquered nations and/or with the climax of Jesus conquering his enemies who refuse to submit as mentioned in Psalms 2 - Jesus was always obedient to God whereas Israel was not. This climax would be when God's kingdom would begin it's rule over the Earth as mentioned in Daniel 2:44 and Revelation 11:15)

This "seed" is also shown and proved in the gospel by Luke as being God's Son Jesus - Luke 3:23-38 - Notice how Israel's ancient king David is in the family line too in verse 31. Abraham is mentioned in verse 34.

More will be said about Abraham in the Bible Story section - soon to be released.
