Abraham is one of those “giants” in Scripture we all know about, but probably don’t often think about. As “the Father of many Nations” and one who received God’s Promise, we too often associate him only with the Israelites of the Old Testament.

Through faith in Abraham’s one Descendant, Jesus, we are also made his descendants and the promise God made to him, is now also for us!
