Abraham: Father of the Hebrew people

Abraham:  Father of the Hebrew people (Genesis 12 – 23)

Abraham is chosen by God to father a people to represent God to the world.

Because of Adam’s sin and the fall of man, God’s attention is now focused on a plan of redemption for Mankind. God wants a people through whom He can work to produce a reflection of Himself, and through whom He can spread the message of redemption to the world. He chooses Abraham, who becomes the father of the Hebrew people, and promises him a country (land), countless descendants (seed), and a worldwide and timeless impact (blessing). Abraham is living in Ur, near the convergence of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, at the time. God leads him to the land of Canaan, where Abraham settles and has two sons, Ishmael and Isaac.
